Have no idea if it's real or photoshopped. Found it using Stumbleupon.

Oooh! Top secret government installation!

Or maybe the place where they filmed "You Only Live Twice"?

That is neat. If they do the movie live action they could use that for a set (with some proper matting to remove the buildings and ocean of course). Wonder what it is actually for?

wow. Love the limestone/chalk weyr like cave settlement on the outer edge.
Have seen one extinct volcano with a lake inside. In Grenada, Lake Etang. it to was very green but way to shallow. No where near as dramatic as this one. :0)

That is a really great pic. Would love to know where it was.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I think that's one of the Izu islands, off the southern coast of Japan.
Rest well, Mrs. McCaffrey. Long live your work!

I google mapped Izu Islands and couldn't find that specific one, but I found one that looks even more like a weyr to me, even though it has no lake and I'm not sure how big it is. https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Izu+I...lands&t=h&z=16 Actually, now that I looked at it again, It looks pretty small. However, https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Izu+I...lands&t=h&z=17 looks like a good hold location.
the gap beetween theory and practice is bigger in practice than in theory.
