Amazonian Heart Illusion


What you see below is a secret hidden deep inside the Amazon Rainforest. Amazonia, also known as Amazon Jungle, is a moist broadleaf forest that covers most of the Amazon Basin of South America. Here are some fun facts: did you know that this basin encompasses seven million square kilometers (1.7 billion acres), of which five and a half million square kilometers (1.4 billion acres) are covered by the rainforest? This region includes territory belonging to nine nations, where the majority of the forest is contained within Brazil, with 60% of the rainforest. Now that we have covered the educational part, let’s continue with the description. It was shot on September 30th, 2010 in Brazil, and shows an aerial view of a natural lake fed by a spring in the Amazon River basin near Manaus. Simple, yet beautiful, isn’t it?

    It’s not an illusion. It IS shaped like a heart.

      The illusion is that instead of water, it looks like a bush cut through and shone to the sky.

    Illusion : a false appearance or deceptive impression of reality.

  • miziab

    You idiots, look closely in the water. There’s a face which looks like Jesus

  • Airlock Holmes

    The illusion is not the muddy heart shaped pond in the Amazon. The illusion is that in the eye of the photographer, it’s as if the Amazon made a heart shape for the aerial photographer. When so viewed, it *is* an illusion “of the heart”, not simply “of a heart,” and one in which sufficiently abstract web surfers may also participate.

  • Enrique Rick Decena Vazquez

    I think that if you look at the lake on a different angle, from the top, or from the sides it wont look like a heart at all. Giving this picture the benefit of the doubt, I would like to think that’s the illusion rather than just being a picture about nature’s beauty.
