50 Of The Most Interesting Winter Pics That Showcase What True Cold Looks Like

The Starks are always right, eventually—winter is coming, and would you look at that, it’s already here in our yards. And it doesn’t feel like leaving.

Don’t forget to put on your gloves, hats, and scarves, the photos are so powerful, you can almost feel the cold through your screens. We’ve also packed you some hot tea in a thermos because the weather outside is truly frightful. So go on, scroll down and have some fun in the snow. Remember to upvote your fave photos and tell us all about the coldest winter you’ve ever experienced in the comments.

‘Absolute Units’: 30 Times People Saw Something So Big, They Just Had To Submit The Pic To This Online Group

In photography, size manipulation of an object is called forced perspective. Forced perspective is a technique that manipulates human visual perception to make an object appear larger, smaller, closer, or farther away than it is in reality. Think of Italy’s most typical tourist picture with the leaning Pisa tower. Or someone holding the sun at sunset in their palm.

Yet, this post is not about faking the size of the items in photos. Instead, the article is about all the real-life objects and creatures that the human eye is not used to seeing that massive. Even the picture doesn’t do its justice to convey its scale. 

Welcome to Reddit page Absolute Units, also titled “Lads that you’re in awe at the size of.” This subreddit offers a variety of pictures featuring animals, people, statues, anything you can think of that is extremely ‘oversized’ and not at its ‘natural’ size. From giant humans to frogs with unexpectedly ‘thicc’ thighs, prepare to see the Giants (no, not the baseball team).
