Photo Fun: Classic Mountains Turned Psychedelic

Google recently open-sourced a bit of software called Deep Dream, which mucks about with photos to create surreal hallucinogenic images. For a bit of fun we've tried running some of our favourite mountain pictures from the user galleries through a free app called Dreamscope, which lets you apply a variety of filters with far-out names ...with mixed results. Here's what it's made of ten classic mountains. But is it art?
