There’s an island called the Skerries and there’s a point in google maps, where the island looks exactly like this.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on?
That appears to be on purpose as the top left says “Photo Sphere” instead of “Photo”. It’s trying to give a 3D look of the entire island that you can look around on the spot. I assume the colours are so that lighting does not affect whether or not you can see something properly; as lighting might be able to camouflage some of the scenery. You also know where you are looking at all times; avoiding the kind of skewing that is present in Google street view. Surely the benefits this provides can only be done on a computer, and not via camera, thus the view of the island from that point was digitally rebuilt.
Science side of tumblr doesn’t fuck around.
Or, you know, it could be this:
This is a virtual panorama - meaning it was created using a computer. It was created using Mandelbulb 3D and he colouring was done using a psychedelic mandala created in Contextfree.
because that’s what it is. You might want to click on the artist’s name under the work’s title.
