17 Photos That Are So Perfectly Timed, You Just Have To Look Twice

One of the most important aspects of photography is timing. Sometimes a great photo can take hours of patience, and at other times, a great photo can happen almost by accident. In either case, the timing of the shot is often what separates an ordinary picture from something truly stunning. Check out these examples to see what I mean.

1. Trapped in a bubble.

As the puppy started to rise into the sky he cried: "Help me please, I am just a doggo, I cannot float away to outer space." 

2. A metamorphosis.

This beautiful picture is almost symbolic of how youth is fleeting, as ephemeral as the flap of a butterfly's wings. Is this what it would take for older people to get more love and respect in society today?

3. Santa's reindeer looks a little different...

Sure, Spot isn't as famous as the other reindeer, but guess who Santa trusts with his slippers every morning? Here he is pictured at his summertime retreat.

4. Caught snacking.

Mother nature is a photographer's best friend. Mmmm, that looks like a seriously delicious snack this bird is about to enjoy, and it's almost as big as his head! 

5. Mighty Mouse!

This mouse is on the ultimate mission, and he's flying into action. The super heroes never look the same as they do on TV. 

6. A "ghost ship" peeks out of the San Francisco fog.

Let me tell you, the fog in San Francisco is absolutely no joke. Either that or it's Peter Pan's ship riding off to Neverland.


7. Hey man, owls get married too.

Looks like Hedwig from Harry Potter is getting married! He found love (and a human body, apparently). But I do need to know who invited the Owl to the wedding...

8. View of Times Square.

This is an absolutely spectacular shot. Even on a cloudy day, Times Square shines bright. The timing and perspective of the airplane flying overhead couldn't be more perfect.

9. Dragonfly: Reality vs Tattoo.

What are the odds I ask you? What are the odds? Do you think the real one was out looking for his friends and happened to notice his portrait somewhere?

10. Supermoon seen in Dubai.

It's almost as if the moon is being held up on a little stand. Only in Dubai could they train the moon to sit in the right place at the right time. 

11. A truly fiery beauty.

Yep, she's definitely pretty hot. You might even say she's smokin'. Pictures like this make me wonder how long it took the photographer to really notice what they captured.

12. What a flock.

Faster than a speeding bullet, it's the one and only Super Gull. And he's living out his dream to become part of the airshow. If mama could only see him now.


13. What long arms you have.

This is what happens when Stretch Armstrong retired. He gets hired out for small local festivals and performs community outreach. Letting people know from many feet away that they have dropped something. 

14. Uh oh...

If you weren't afraid of roller coasters already, you might be after this. Could you imagine hearing that notorious "click, click, click" as the coaster rises up to the top of the hill... only to hear jet engines fire up?

15. That's quite a sail.

Being on the water at night can bring forth some amazing sights and this is no exception. I wonder if it took the photographer several tries to do this or if it was just a lucky shot.

16. This cloud looks like a dragon.

Seeing stuff like this makes you start to understand how ancient peoples might have started to create legends about dragons in the sky. 

17. Now that's timing!

It looks like he may be doing some water surface gymnastics, but odds are less than one second later, every single person in that photo was soaked.

Remember to SHARE these with your family and friends.
