There's so many pics around us that are photoshopped, we sometimes forget that photos can still be taken that don't need any digital manipulation.

Here's 10 of the best we've seen from across the Internets. 

You may have to look twice at some of them, but they're all the real deal!

1. The Tornado At The End Of The Rainbow

초구삼진 on Twitter: "Tornado and Rainbow Over Kansas..2011 August 14"

Taken by Eric Nguyen from NASA, this pic is the perfect example of great timing.

2. The Black & White Woman

What looks like a cut and paste job, is actually how things looked at the RuPaul's Drag Race premiere in the US.

Drag queen Detox used heavy makeup to create an illusion of a haunting photograph from the 1920's.

3. The Floating Space Chair

It's so obviously fake right?!

Hold up.  Not fake at all.  The chair was connected to a weather balloon and set loose into space for a Toshiba commercial.

Why? Just because ok!

4. Man On A Tightrope

Powerful Pictures on Twitter: "Dean Potter walking on a tightrope, without pole or safety equipment at Taft Point, Yosemite."

In 2011, daredevil Dean Potter made his way across El Capitan in Yosemite.

He also did a moonwalk last year... just for good measure.

5. Dubai: City In The Clouds


The aerial shot in Dubai of the 22 skyscrapers appearing out of the fog sure is surreal.

There are similar pics around starring our very own Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Eureka Skydeck on Twitter: "Melbourne why are you so pretty? Here is a pic just incase you missed it @thats_melbourne #fog"
Tom Steinfort on Twitter: "Check out the Harbour Bridge flags just poking through! Cool shot!! #fog "@9NewsSyd: Thick fog blanketing Sydney""
Flying Kangaroo on Twitter: "#Brisbane City buildings rising out of a sea of fog this morning, #BNEfog"

6. The Shipwrecked Cruise Ship

Adira Club Member on Twitter: "Sun Cruise Resort and Yacht sebuah hotel yang memiliki bentuk mirip kapal pesiar mewah di Jeongdongjin, Korea Selatan"

This is actually the Sun Cruise Resort and Yacht in South Korea, which is a hotel built to look like a maritime disaster.

It's definitely unique, that's for sure!

7. The Trees Are Alive...

Interrete on Twitter: "The French artist Clement Briend projects images of faces onto trees. #art"

These are pretty amazing looking, and are definitely in the not fake list.

French artist Clement Briend projects 3D images onto trees as part of an art installation in Cambodia and Singapore, much like Sydney's VIVID festival.

8. The Rollercoaster In The Ocean

Stasii Schulze. on Twitter: "Skate near the beach in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, but concert in Atlantic City! @EmblemThree @wesleystromberg"

It's the unfortunate effects from Hurricane Sandy that left the rollercoaster in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, underwater after the storm swept it out to sea.

9. The Alien Egg Hatching

Robin Wylie on Twitter: "Steam fizzes inside a lens of water, seconds before blowing it skyward. Strokkur Geyser, Iceland - via @vincekenny"

Nah, it's not something alien... it's the geyser in Strokkur, Iceland.

Well timed photos can capture the moment the eruption happens, which causes a swell beneath the surface and gives the effect of an egg beneath the water.

❤ TeNeℰՏℋa ❤ on Twitter: "Strokkur fountain geyser just before the eruption, Iceland."


10. Crack Open A Giant Beer

BlencathraFSC on Twitter: "Dust storm near the coastal town of Onslow in Australia (Jan 2013)#geography"

This is a pretty impressive pic of a dust storm off the coast of Onslow, here in Australia.

Not so pretty or impressive once it hits though.
