Ocean's Fury Unleashed

0 ratings | 5278556 views
One of the most recognizable lighthouse photographs in the world. Perceived optical illusion at end. When first seeing the famous and historical photograph, most people assume that the lighthouse keeper must have been killed. In fact, the keepers had been living in fear of death during the 1989 storm and at one point had taken refuge in the lantern room of the tower. Waves the night before had smashed through the lower windows of the tower, causing the structure to flood, washing away everything in its path including the television, table, chairs, coffee maker and even the refrigerator. The keepers in fact were waiting to be rescued by helicopter. Assuming the rescue chopper had arrived, one of the keepers opened the lower door of the structure and looked up at the helicopter but realized that it was not the rescue chopper. He also realized that a giant wave was about to engulf the tower. He immediately turned about and pulled the door closed behind him. Had he not done so at that second, he surely would have been killed. Awareness Alert: There are only 4 Northern White Rhinos left on Earth, making them the most critically endangered species. This magnificent creature will vanish before our eyes... endextinction.org

I could not be a lighthouse keeper. Too risky and no chance of a decent cup of coffee when the coffee machine has just sailed out of the window

Puti Rayner I see one of those ghost guys from the Pac Man games running along the ledge at 1:22. But I don't see Lincoln's face at the end. I see A face, but it looks nothing like Lincoln. I have pareidolia, so I tend to see faces in everything

I want what you guys are smoking, & Nancy Hahn (below) definitely needs to avoid any mind altering substances!
Asone82 (2 years ago)
true and at the same time there's a little tiny face in the wave on the right side of the lighthouse. It doesn't look as ghoulish as that face though :-) I think our brain is programmed to see faces in any sort of patterns.
Nancy Hahn (2 years ago)
That is awesome! They say God takes on many forms. I truly believe that.

Oooooooh Kaaaaay, So are you saying you see God in the grimacing ghoul or in the bunny wabbit???

all I can imagine is looking out of one of the windows during this, it must have felt like they were sinking into the ocean.

Trails West (2 years ago)
Lighthouses had to be built strong enough to survive anything nature could throw at one. The walls are 4' thick and most lighthouses are anchored deep into the bedrock of the earth. They have foundations deeper than most high rise buildings. That's what makes them tough. Hurricane Camille hit the Gulf Coast at Gulfport, MS in 1969. The city was destroyed by the hurricane but the lighthouse was still standing.
privatetutor1 (2 years ago)
You'd think the highest windows would be East/West facing and the others would be Northeast/Southwest. Why face the wrath head on?
I love these pictures.   I love taking pictures of lighthouses.

+Revolution Libra and how the hell did they get it built with all the waves pounding the rocks??
Spill Burg (2 years ago)
+Revolution Libra well its not a big surface area the wave is hitting so it goes around the structure more so than just knocking it over. But yes it is a very solid structure none the less.

I love how people think it was 'photoshopped'. Let me assure the non believers out there that I remember seeing this picture in a magazine back in the late 80's. Photoshop didn't exist because digital cameras weren't around. In fact, pc's spoke 'basic' language and a big one had a ram of ............ A whopping 128 kilobytes!
jm5732 (2 years ago)
I recall seeing this photo long ago also. Memorable and terrifying.
Helium Road (2 years ago)
+David Steer I agree it's real, but you can fake photos without software. You just need a dark room (aka, a "photo shop") and some patience.

0innerself0 (2 years ago)
+Gurn Blanstein It took years just to build the base, that was sweeped away many times and had to be rebuild over and over. The rocks were so little emerging from the sea that the men could only work for a couple of hours or sometimes just minutes because of the hard climate. That was when they could even reach the place. Then another few years to build the tower itself.

My parents have that picture in their bathroom and it's always scared the f*cking hell out of me. Considering we live a few blocks from the ocean it just doesn't seem like a picture I would enjoy looking at every day. God, I hate it so much.
sulutkin (5 years ago)
I only see left eye and a nose little bit but anyway that left eye looks quite real it has even reflection point of light in the middle of that eye. Anyway those wawes are so sudden and silent from back side of tower you might not even notice that big one is already right behind you if you open that lower just to see wiew.

how the hell did they build burj al arab? or the palm jumeirah? or the atlantis hotel? or the jiaozhou bay bridge? with ancient aliens technologies :))
userac78 (5 years ago)
if the guy taking the pics had tried helping him instead of the keeper closing the door he would have stayed outside waiting and swept away by that gigantic wave. perplexing how a good deed can bring tragic results.

Right to the right of the top of lighthouse it looks like a puppy's face .
Steve B (5 years ago)
They built it from the top down lol.. No, it might look like they are built from the bottom of the ocean but at low tides the reefs which they are built on are only just below the waterline, they are built on huge granite blocks like a big jigsaw and slotted together needing no cement. Crazy when you think that most were built in the early 1800's with no power tools etc.They had at most 4 hours working time before the tide rose again!
