Now here’s a good one; apparently the photo you are seeing came from a set of pictures provided by the owner of a house to some people who were looking to rent it for the weekend. They saw this picture and thought it was a lake, so were all excited and looking forward to boating and jet skiing and stuff. When they asked the owner about it, the lady emailed them back and said: “unfortunately that is not a lake, it is a wall“. Hehe, good one Katriana! Thanks for sharing…

House Beside the Lake, erm... Wall

  5. Mel says:

    @_@ I was thinking.. “ok.. so what’sthe illusion with this scenic lake?” Had to read the desecription. Wow. Speak about a well-placed wall.

  7. May says:

    That’s cool, but how did a boat get on the wall…o_0

  8. thunder says:

    Very nice! ! !

  9. Wow that’s amazing!

  10. So the mountains are real and the lake is fake?

  11. Me says:

    Cool illusion, it took me a second to figure it out.

  12. I can’t see the wall. It just looks like a cat lazily photoshopped onto a lake.

  13. FANTASTIC! I never would have guessed. Vurdlak you have done it again! Outstanding!

  14. chris says:

    thats really cool

  15. Nice illusion, thanks for sharing.

  16. Muncher23 says:

    This one goes in the top 10 for this year.. I love that it’s not made to be an illusion, it just happens to be one..

  17. urticina says:

    All I can see is a photoshopped cat popping on the screen once in a while

  18. Derek Paris says:

    Despite the fact that I live in that kind of area with walls like that, I still saw the lake. Very nice!

  19. Angelika Baschant says:

    really goooood one!

  20. Jessie says:

    haha that’s amazing :)

  21. jasper says:

    I like this but there is one thing….. that could be just a giant cat! x.x lol

  22. Greeng13 says:

    4 some weird reason can’t c d wall. My brain can’t proses it well.

  23. Greeng13 says:

    4get my first coment I finally saw the cat was on top of the wall. Really kool

  24. Care Bear says:

    The cat is just there to keep you away from the fish in the lake. She wants them all for herself. Meeeeow.

  25. peace-angel says:

    That is really cool, neva would have picked it as a wall

  26. Pascale Fortin says:

    Good one!

  27. Joseph says:

    Excellent and great gif

  28. Sue says:

    Looks like it could have been taken in El Paso, TX. The southernmost Rockies come right into downtown El Paso, and lots of yards use white adobe walls as fences. Anyone know where this was taken?

  29. ice says:

    whoa, that is one giant cat! is what i thought at first

    i easily it as a lake or i see it as a possible wall with some effort

  30. Ron Calhoun says:

    It really looks like a lake, good one.

  31. Jasper Smith says:

    I love this, but there is one thing that could just be a giant cat. x.x lol

  32. Johnny says:

    I don’t get it… It is clearly a lake with mountains behind it. Do you mean its a picture of a lake? If so, whats the difference, we are viewing it as a picture on our computer. What indication is there that its a wall? Do you post anything people submit to you for this website. If I sent you a hamburger and told you it was a dinosaur dressed as a hamburger would that be considered an illusion?

  33. I'lltry says:

    LOL That is just so amazing. I too thought it was a lake, until I scrolled down to the next picture and saw the cat on top of it.

  34. anon. says:

    thats awesome

  35. Lucas Delfin says:

    Now that’s a very good one!

  36. Johnny says:

    oh wow, I get it now

  37. Honesty says:

    Great that the owner was honest about it, although the picture might be a bit misleading.

  38. Jess says:

    Thats fantastic! hope they werent TOO dissapointed

  39. Jane says:

    hahaha,.wow,.awesomeeeeeee….I saw it,..

  40. Kimon says:

    That’s a good one. I totally thought it was a lake and the cat just looked like nonsense until I read a bit.

  41. Jo Novotny says:

    To me the beach (top of wall) seemed too white. That made it look photo-shopped or something.

  42. Bathbomber says:

    Just wondering, How often does the “Top 10 Highest Rated Illusions” update. I’m pretty sure this one deserves to be up there.

  43. meh says:

    one of the best you’ve ever had

  44. galloots says:


  45. Pedro says:

    Well, to tell you the truth, i don’t believe it…
    The “wall” has too many curves. Here the boat is theres a big curve implying that the is more distant… but there is no ground to make that distance. Form this perspective it seams that the “wall” has bumps!!!

  46. jeff says:

    one of the best I have seen here.

  47. Ryan says:

    That’s brilliant

  48. John Synnott says:

    Really looks good :)

  49. fraser says:

    This has got to be one of the best ones I’ve seen. The fact it wasn’t a deliberate illusion made to confuse the viewer makes it even better.

  50. adhd says:

    hehe, yea nice one, looks like a lake alright

  51. Living Sound says:

    So nice!

  52. jessica says:

    i dont see a wall…i see a lake and thats all i see…can someone explain it to me?

  53. jessica says:

    never mind i get it hahaha

  54. Sergio says:

    yes… very nice where was the pic taken?

  55. Nova T says:

    Simple but clever. I like it!

  56. shvillypoo says:

    FUNNY AND REALLY COOL!!! as soon as i saw it on my gadget on igoogle. i was like, “pretty lake”. but then i realised the caption below and it said “…erm wall.” i tried to picture it as a wall but just couldn’t bring my mind to do it.
    massive fan of this website byee!

  57. Yeah, that’s something! Really flashes my brain..hehe..great one ;)

  58. asianpearlkeeper says:

    I see…very funny!

  59. This is a good optical illusion, but it makes me wonder what some people see with their “mind’s eye”.

  60. preetish says:

    beautiful….surely the best illusion under non manipulated photography

  61. Dude says:

    I don’t get it. All I see is a lake, is the wall part of the house or something?

  62. Frank Clickwork Berger says:

    this is one of the best illusions I have seen so far!

    Thanx a lot for sharing, bro

    and for this amazing site of course too!!!

  63. clover says:

    at first i was really confused and didnt get what’s so great about it. but now i see it…haha, brilliant

  64. Blueeye says:

    Haha, good one! I admit I didn’t see it at first glance (just a giant kitten on the beach for a clue?) and was ready to click away, but then it hit me.

  65. amksep says:

    This is very nice one :D

  66. Robby says:

    LOL I couldnt tell at all for the first 4 times I came to ths page lol. I was like ‘Why did they edit the cat in on top of a lake? Thn I was like ‘Is the wall of the house painted to look like a nature scene?’ lol I just got it.

  67. Elliot says:


  68. junifer says:

    hahaha, it got me, although the title say’s wall I just couldn’t believe it at first that it’s just a wall but when I finally realized it that it is, I just was laughing real hard. LOL, hahaha. One of your best!

  69. Rajesh Kumar says:

    Nice one! The wall was not visible until I saw cat standing on it.

  70. Nikki M. says:

    I dont get it?

  71. risa says:

    ha ha?! nice one! they’ve been fooled by the wall?! maybe it’s April’s fools day when they got the picture?!

  72. Scott says:

    errrr, Photoshop much? nice pixilated water, shadows on the plant show the sun is camera side due to the angle, so therefore as the top of the ‘wall’ is white so would the wall as the shadow/shade would be the other side of it like the plants.

  73. Lydia says:

    Woahh! Didnt notice the wall until the cat was stood on it! :)
    I just thought it was water :)

  74. korne says:

    follow the edge of “lake” from both sides till they come to the middle hard to see but there ia a corner and if you look at ground you can see bump of grount agains the wall

  75. JayEvans says:

    Does anyone else see the blinking cat and boat?

  76. Juli says:

    wow love your website its awesome. It took me a while to notice but yea i see the wall. Where the cat is, right below it is a corner. Its hard to see but its there.

  77. carzy chick says:

    i dont seee it?!?!?!

  78. Ron Callhoun says:

    I really did look like a lake.

  79. Cesar Crash says:

    It would be very cool if someone could paint a reallistic boat on the wall!
