If I search Google Images for mountains of madness lovecraft, I get something like this URL:

https://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&hl=en&source=hp&biw=1019&bih=805&q=mountains+of+madness+lovecraft&gbv=2&oq=mountains+of+madness+lovecraft&aq=f&aqi=g-S1&aql=&gs_l=img.3..0i24.4470.1890.0.2347.8.1.7.0.0.0.285.245.2-1.1.0...0.0.W_C1z_rfY-k

Is there a very easy way to get a short URL suitable for sharing?

You can either use the URL http://www.google.com/search?q=mountains+of+madness+lovecraft&tbm=isch or you could just use a URL shortener, like bit.ly or Google’s own one, goo.gl.

Note: tbm=isch means the search will be done in images.

The url in the form http://images.google.com/images?q=mountains+of+madness+lovecraft works too.

Test: http://images.google.com/images?q=mountains+of+madness+lovecraft

Search tools in Google Images correspond to various modifiers, as you can find out by trying them and checking how the link was changed, for example:

The basic idea is experimenting with the url - you can always try which parts you can omit.
