  3. You-Know-Who is gonna be pissed that you took a picture of his horcrux hiding spot.

  4. Sailed by this magnificent site back in December. The top portion was covered in fog. My pictures are not as good as this one.

  5. This is where I shall build my secret lair from which to run my global evil empire. I shall construct a secret submarine base below the waterline and retractable satellite towers and laser cannons at the top. I shall be invincible!
