This picture is neat, don’t you think? I’m not sure what lenses were used to shoot this, nor how the effect of the sky in the water is captured, but either way it gives you opinnion this guy is fishing in the sky standing on a cliff. Nice :) This picture was originally uploaded to flickr by user Solitaire1, and I just wanted to share his work with you guys. Hope you like it!

  2. Leion says:

    The effect is nice!
    It took me a while to realise I was looking at a pond, not the sky!

  3. dont worry bout it says:

    its foggy in the fog its actually a lake

  4. Tony Carbajal says:

    It is a nice confusing picture :-)

  5. ... says:

    soooo fake loh

  6. boopit says:

    I know how they did it. The fog was so low to the ground, that the reflection could not be distinguished from the real thing. tell me if you think I am correct.

  7. mrs obvious says:

    this is sooo stupid, its a reflection!!! duh!!!!!!!!

  8. Harpo 52 says:

    I’ve seen a few illusions on this site even though I’m kinda new. This one is not the best but it is good so stop making fun of it.

  9. Hai says:

    oh…@ first glance i didn’t notice it was a lake

  10. Mat says:

    It’s not foggy at all where are you all getting the fog from its overcast with a slight bit of blue sky coming through its just the lake is seen beyond the critical angle of reflection and refraction so it reflets the sky

  11. andymancrtr says:

    you got it Mat.

  12. Spud says:

  14. fender says:

    definetly not an illusion but a really cool photograph

  15. Red. says:

    Why have we eliminiated the idea that he could actually be standing on a cliff, fishing in the sky? maybe he likes that sorta thing.

  16. me says:

    lol this is soooo kool!

  17. SeXy GuRl :) says:

    ok this is a blonde moment but i still dont get it…..even tho i read the comments…..how is it a lake???…….BLONDE MOMENT :) :) :)

  18. Randolph says:

    Do you not notice the minor ripples in the WATER? its clear that it is water and not fog. it doesnt even look like fog… how many times have you seen fog with ripples in it?

  19. Pandas says:

    huh? that is just weird

  20. Shahriar says:

    It is really great.

  21. confused says:

    this was kool i knew it was a lake or pond or w/e right off the bat but nice effect

  22. Mirrormage says:

    This one is easy. besides all that has been said, look at where he is standing, and where his stuff is. He can’t stand on the side of a cliff.
    I like this one, though.

  23. Sarah says:

    lol rad boy do i love that word! anywayz the pic is pretty cool! its very optical….

  24. Dani says:

    why is everyone saying that this is obvious. IT’S NOT! The real only way to figure it out is if you see the ripples in the water. And you can barely see those!

  25. Anonymous says:

    Don’t make such a big deal of it, it’s just reflcted in the water. Good photo oppurtunity though! mat comment 10 – i’m 15 and crtical angles ect are really not hard, obviously it will be past the cric. angle of water in the position it was taken from, so why even bring it up? nice illusion!!

  26. Joey says:

    its not fog, its reflection of clouds in the water. at first glance it looked like a fisherman standing on a cliff, with a few things in the air. pretty convincing apart from the ripples show up the water

  27. Anonymous says:

    won’t find any fish there. LOL.

  28. Anon says:

    He could be trying to catch flying fish.

    I like this kind of illusion, this is quite nice.

  29. Apiez says:

    wow he at the sky…

  30. zysmith says:

    If you look closely, the sliver of blue above the tip of his fishing rod, combined with the round dark grey spot straight above his head looks like a shark mouth and eye. It is laying on it’s left side with its nose facing dwn and to the left.

  31. someone says:

    I see nothen. :(

  32. morgan says:

    the sky being in the water is just pure reflection-

  33. dot says:

    yall all suck it is they sky reflecting on the water duh!

  34. Anonynous says:

    Pretty good though
    i knew it was sky reflecting off a pond :)

  35. tristin says:

    its real hard to notice the water ripples, but u see them

  36. Ayana says:

    its the relection from the water

  37. isaac says:

    its just a fog!!!! common sense

  38. dipa says:

    People saying this illusion sucks are kids under 14.
    it is just a very nice picture, ty for sharing.

  39. qwertyuiop says:

    it sort of reminds me of the dreamworks logo…

  40. Jackie says:

    Omg it cause the reflection of the clouds and sky is on the water. And he’s not on a cliff just a rock hanging or the water like a peninsula

  41. Tom says:

    It’s a reflection of the sky..

  42. STR e t C H says:

    everybody is in a fog on this one……
