At first sight, this seems like a propeller about to get attached to an airplane engine. I thought the same until I looked closer. Then it blew my mind. Zoom in and discover why.
Can you see them? Look in the holes. There are workers inside that turbine. Not little people, but full-scale humans. So no, it's not an airplane propeller: It's gigantic propeller waiting to be mounted on power windmill turbine by people working from inside the turbine itself.
The windmill is one of the two currently being installed in the city of Hamburg, Germany, and it's officially rated at 6 megawatts of power. Not enough to travel in time, but amazingly cool anyway.
And you thought the one that required an helicopter to reach its top was big. [Big Picture celebrates Earth Day—Thanks reader Faiz for the wider shot]
New pictures are online of Richard Branson cavorting around his private island Necker with a naked supermodel.
Branson was posing for photographer Stephane Gautronneau when he asked Branson if model Denni Parkinson, Gautronneau's girlfriend who was present at the time, could get in some pictures.
She clung to the billionaire's back while he kite surfed and also lolled around on the sand as Branson stood on the shore in a white linen shirt.
Branson told the Mail on Sunday 'What can you say if you are asked to pose with a naked lady? I only wish I had eyes in the back of my head.'
The paper added Branson's wife and two grown children watched the shoot from the shore.
The police officers beg and plead for the man to put on his robes, but all the Naked Wizard wants to do is be free of his wizard sleeves and hang in the breeze. He throws his colorful garb onto the grass.
"It doesn't have to stop," the Naked Wizard says.
"I'll tell you what," the cop says. "You can have a great time -- but you can have an even better time if you put your clothes on...Can I get them for you?"
The officer grabs the gown and tosses to the Naked Wizard, but he casts it away again. Then the cops put on their rubber gloves, and things get ugly.
Herewith, the best Tasering video since "Don't Tase me bro!"

“Fairy tales and legends” is the theme of this year’s World Sand Sculpture Festival now underway at the Tottori Sand Dunes in Tottori prefecture. On display (until May 31) are 19 massive works crafted by world-class sculptors from ten nations. The artists used around 2,700 tons of sand and took about two weeks to complete their works. Can you identify the fairy tales and legends depicted in these sand sculptures?

I am a big fan of extreme sport photography as you guys seen a lot of it on my posts before, when I found the work of Dan Vojtech I was amazed, his photos are pure inspiration. Together with some of his work is a little biography so you can get to know him a little bit. Enjoy!
My name is Dan Vojtech and I am a young photographer. I am specializing in extreme sport photographs. It all started 8 years ago with my dad's old camera Zenith- E. Maybe you would not believe but first couple of years almost all pictures which I took were just black and white. I was mostly using Praktic MTL and later on Nikon F 90.
The big change began when I started to study Advertising Photography on Thomas Bata University. Whole day I was surrounded with photos and there was no chance to escape.
Next step was cooperation with magazine Board and Dirtbiker. I started to take more colorful pictures and use more external flashes. More and more I was focusing on clean composition and perfect light.
At the present time I try to improve my work with flashes and try to use something new which has been used. I am working on several new plans which are going to be somewhere between sport and staged photography and which should move our perception of sport.
