    Amazing picture thread

    Given the debate in the "amusing" picture thread, thought we might try an amazing picture thread.

    Amazing for what ever reason you feel it is. Awesome, thought provoking, weird - whatever.

    I will try with a few:

    What is believed to be the first ever photograph (in existence) of London. Taken in 1839 from Trafalgar square looking down parliament street.

    Koojo has other threads to worry about - this is the "amazing" thread, not the amusing.

    Nice pic by the way.

    That mushroom cloud.... has it actually been altered to look like a grotesquely grinning clown ? Or did it just come out that way naturally ?

    In Indonesia itís known as Masjid Kubah Mas, or otherwise as Masjid Dian Al-Mahri, and itís built on a plot of 80 hectares surrounded by fruit trees and a few other large and luxurious buildings.

    And make no mistake about it: no expense was spared in constructing the mosque: itís absolutely incredible. Just imagine: all the domes, pillars, chandeliers and other ornaments are covered by pure 24 carrat gold!! In addition, some of the building materials are imported as well. The granite for example came from Italy, Spain, Norway, and Brazil.

    Incredibly, this mosque was built by a successful businesswoman from Serang named Dian Juriah Maimun Al-Rasyid.
