New on 500px : Abandon Ship by nocturnalpix by nocturnalpix

An old shipwreck on the St-Laurent’s shore in Baie St-Paul. Ironically the ship’s name is “L’accalmie” which stands for “the lull”…

New on 500px : The Blue Ghost, USS Lexington by michaelriehl88 by michaelriehl88

This is a picture taken for memorial day in remembrance of all the troops. This is the USS Lexington aka The Blue Ghost. It was one of the most decorated ships in all WW2, and set more records than any other Essex Class carrier in the history of naval aviation. It got its nickname from Tokyo Rose because the Japanese had reported it destroyed at least 4 times.

New on 500px : In the middle of nowhere by Carlosmacr by Carlosmacr

One of the most exciting experiences in Iceland was searching and finding that crashed airplane (1973 – nobody died in the accident). It sounds a little bit strange to me to say that, as there were so many great experiences in that amazing country.

It’s not only the crashed airplane itself but the place where it is, with nothing but volcanic sand around. Another thing it made it more interesting is that we thought being in the wrong way as it saw not visible until you are really close to it.


Uno de las experiencias más interesantes en Islandia fue visitar este avión accidentado en 1973 (sin víctimas). Me suena raro decir eso habiendo tantas cosas por hacer y por ver en Islandia, y todas ellas alucinantes 🙂

No era sólo el avión en sí, sino el lugar en que se encontraba, únicamente rodeado de arena negra volcánica hasta donde alcanza la vista. Algo que hizo muy interesante la visita es la sensación de no estar en el camino correcto ya que el avión no era visible hasta estar a escasos metros del mismo.
