Ever wondered what barbecuing on top of a moving submarine could be like? Or walking along a 3D crosswalk, and even a mast? Or seeing snow for the first time? Look no further. You’ll get all the answers from these amazing photographs below that we came across in the excellent Picture of the Day section of Twisted Sifter.
Team Rwanda Sees Snow For First Time Ever
During a race in Moab, Utah, members of Team Rwanda Cycling stop to touch some snow as it was the team’s first time ever seeing it! The photo was taken back in 2007 and it perfectly captures a moment they will never forget. Some members of the team even put snow in their pockets trying to take it with them.

Spirals of Light Bursting from Earth
This photo was taken from the International Space Station by astronaut Barry Wilmore, the commander of Expedition 42 and one of six astronauts currently on board. Expedition 42 has been on the ISS since September 2014 and will return to Earth in March. Of the photo Wilmore adds, “Spain looks like it is floating away from Africa”.

Barbecuing On Top of a Moving Submarine
In this vintage photo from 1983, we see crew members of the HMAS Onslow barbecuing a healthy amount of sausages on top of the submarine while it is still moving! The photo was scanned and posted to reddit by shanbuscus, whose father took the photo.
Meanwhile in Canada
This photo was taken in Glacier National Park in the province of British Columbia and shows a train rumbling through snow banks as high as the train itself! The park’s history is closely tied to two primary Canadian transportation routes, the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), completed in 1885, and the Trans Canada Highway, completed in 1963.

The Odd Couple
In this remarkable capture by Lassi Rautiainen we see an unlikely friendship between a bear and a wolf. The two were spotted in the wilderness of Northern Finland where Rautiainen organizes wilderness trips for photographers and nature lovers through his family-run company, WILD FINLAND. According to an interview with the Daily Mail, Rautiainen observed the young brown bear and grey wolf meeting up every night for ten straight days. The two were spotted sharing meals together and Rautiainen believes they are both young and possibly unsure how to survive alone.

The Mast Walk
Solo round the world yachtsman Alex Thomson recently performed a daring feat on board his high-speed yacht. Dubbed the ‘mast walk‘, Thomson climbed up the 30-meter high mast of the moving vessel, taking a moment to enjoy the view before diving into the ocean below.
