Default Street Sign Laser Warning

Just came across this on dA, what kind of place would have high enough powered lasers to put up signs like that? Some kind of military base or something?

Looks like it is Danish, and doesnt look photoshopped to me.

One possibility is that it is an area where they are surveying, or possible doing tests with survey/rangefinding gear and such. I'd assume its all fairly low power work, as it only says that using binoculars is dangerous, implying that looking into whatever they are using with the unaided eye is safe.

That's cool, but I wish whoever took the photo could take a straight picture.

It's probably supposed to look artsy, but just looks amateurish. :

I would imagine that is at some kind of military installation of some sort where high powered IR lasers are shot all over a range of some sort. Obviously using a pair of binoculars would be a baaad idea.

I doubt it's a military testing range, those usually have warings about shots being fired as well (seriously, see attached beach pic from holland). It also babbles about that collecting unexploded ordinance is dangerous and that you'll be prosecuted for posessing any.

It's definitely some kind of test range as you can see a range tower in the background and it's free of all trees. There are also antennas in the background. It could be a commercial test range for night vision systems, target illuminators, designators, communications systems or a host of other systems that are tested for commercial or military use.

There's no guarantee it's not military either as we only have a picture of this sign. There may be warning signs all over about the military range restrictions, etc.

I'm certain it's photoshop. The picture may have been taken at the beach. That looks like a lifeguard tower in the background.
I've spent enough time with photoshop to tell what's real and what's not.. I'm pretty sure it's a shopped picture.
