The Edge of the World

#2 in the app Store!

Stuck On Earth (iTunes Link) hit #2 in the travel section of the app store! Awesome! Thanks again everyone. If you want an update on upcoming versions, watch the Stuck On Earth page in Google+.

The app is still free — all I ask is that you tell your friends…. not once or twice, but more than that! Thanks :)

On DTown

I recently went out to Florida to visit Scott Kelby and see his setup there. While in the studios, I did an episode of D Town with my friend RC Concepcion. It was great fun, as you’ll see below!

Daily Photo – The Edge of the World

This was one of my first times on a black sand beach, and it was even stranger because it was at least eight hours since I had seen another human.

The sound the black sand made was something between normal beach sand and fresh snow. It was a slippery crunch with a slight wet sucking sound as my foot pulled up.

This place is pretty close to one of the recent volcanic eruptions in Iceland. Very close to the town of Vik, this is on the other side of a tall and narrow mountain range. You can kind of drive anywhere. Anywhere. And this looked interesting and kind of scary… so I just drove and drove across the black sand until I got to this place… like something a wicked map designer would make in Skyrim.

    Wow Trey, this is straight out of Planet of the Apes. Sick shot. I love your nerdish references here and there… I have been waiting to get my hands on a copy of Skyrim but they have been out of stock here in Italy since day 1!! Wonderful image, you never cease to amaze me.

    Fantastic Shot, Trey!
    I like the long exposure water rushing to the shore and the tones.
    Congrats on the app store success, man — totally deserved — this app is wonderful.

    Strange colors, scary scene. How did you manage a 10 second exposure at 6 pm in June? Neutral density filter? Yellow filter? Did you explore the cave? Too many questions? Thanks for taking us to this strange place.

    That’s an amazing image, Trey! Gorgeous. LOVE the gold tones. Must have been an incredible experience to take this.

    Awesome shot, the Skyrim reference really got my imagination in the right direction.

    Great image Trey and your Stuck on Earth app made me thinking about buying an iPad.

    Another great shot Trey! I love the colour tone to this picture. Completely agree with Adam regarding ‘The Planet of the Apes’ look, this has a very imaginative aspect to it.

    Congrats Trey!!!!!

    Trey I like this one a lot!!! Though if I was you – I would think – is something or someone about to come storming out of that cave looking thing and gobble me up forever? Also – when you said “drive down the beach” Where you in a car on the actual beach or an ATV?

  • http://timetotakepictures.blogspot.com Keith Moyer

    Reminds me of something from “Myst”…very cool shot Trey. I can really feel the mood in this one.

  • http://www.stuckincustoms.com Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks thanks :)

    George – you can often ignore the EXIF because I do so much pp! :)

    Chris – it was a great offroading truck kinda thing.

  • Susan

    Oh wow!! This is beautiful – what a cool place to find! Love this! Congrats on the app!

  • Henry

    Cool–looks kinda like a gold-toned b&w. Did you change the colors?

  • Big Matty

    You did a good job of making that cave look intriguing/scary/needing to be explored. It’s where the sea monster lives. Or where the gold is hidden ;)
    Awesome shot Trey

    Trey,

    Very other-worldly…definitely SCI-FI (or Outer Limits, for those of you old enough to remember!). Your images are OUT OF THIS WORLD. Thank you.

    I find the app very confusing and the photographs uneven — for a simple, gorgeous view of the entire planet by a professional, check out Beautiful Planet HD iPad/iPhone app. It was the number one in travel for months on end for good reason.

    Trey…absolutely love the new app…now my favorite app on my ipad!! Fantastic idea, and very well designed!! If you ever need photos from Indonesia, let me know…

    @LP Greene…”for a simple, gorgeous view of the entire planet BY A PROFESSIONAL….” what are you saying? Trey is not a professional? I find your comment to be very confusing and uneven.

  • http://www.kelleybard.com Kelley Bard

    wish I could “like” Scotty’s comment :)

  • Joe Eiche

    Love the Skyrim reference Trey and this wonderful photo most certainly does have that Planet of the Apes feel about it as mentioned by a previous poster. Keep up the excellent and inspirational work.

    Name of these rocks are Reynisdrangar and are as you wrote just west of Vik. Only about 3-4km from the ringroad no. 1, and a place sure worth to visit.
