House Beside the Lake, erm… Wall


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…

  • WOW! i can see it as a lake when boat there and wall when cat there! that REALLY cool! wht is this, like me 30th comment or something!

    • Jacko77

      Ohh. Now I get it! I thought at first that it was a giant cat on the other shore!

  • uni anni

    Haha…yeah..i knew it as i saw it!
    Nice ‎​☺

  • alex

  • klun

    i dont understand it! xd

  • Mel

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

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

  • thunder

    Very nice! ! !

  • Wow that’s amazing!

  • So the mountains are real and the lake is fake?

  • Me

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

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

    • nelson

      M, too

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

  • chris

    thats really cool

  • Nice illusion, thanks for sharing.

  • Muncher23

    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..

  • urticina

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

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

  • Angelika Baschant

    really goooood one!

  • Jessie

    haha that’s amazing :)

  • jasper

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

  • Greeng13

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

  • Greeng13

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

  • Care Bear

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

  • peace-angel

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

  • Pascale Fortin

    Good one!

  • Joseph

    Excellent and great gif

  • Sue

    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?

  • ice

    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

  • Ron Calhoun

    It really looks like a lake, good one.

  • Jasper Smith

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

  • Johnny

    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?

  • I’lltry

    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.

  • anon.

    thats awesome

  • Lucas Delfin

    Now that’s a very good one!

  • Johnny

    oh wow, I get it now

  • Honesty

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

  • Jess

    Thats fantastic! hope they werent TOO dissapointed

  • Jane

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

  • Kimon

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

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

  • Bathbomber

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

  • meh

    one of the best you’ve ever had

  • galloots


  • 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!!!

  • jeff

    one of the best I have seen here.

  • Ryan

    That’s brilliant

  • John Synnott

    Really looks good :)

  • fraser

    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.

  • adhd

    hehe, yea nice one, looks like a lake alright

  • Living Sound

    So nice!

  • jessica

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

  • jessica

    never mind i get it hahaha

  • Sergio

    yes… very nice where was the pic taken?

  • Nova T

    Simple but clever. I like it!

  • shvillypoo

    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!

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

  • asianpearlkeeper

    I see…very funny!

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

  • preetish

    beautiful….surely the best illusion under non manipulated photography

  • Dude

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

  • Frank Clickwork Berger

    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!!!

  • clover

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

  • Blueeye

    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.

  • amksep

    This is very nice one :D

  • Robby

    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.

  • Elliot


  • junifer

    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!

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

  • Nikki M.

    I dont get it?

  • risa

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

  • Scott

    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.

  • Lydia

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

  • 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

  • JayEvans

    Does anyone else see the blinking cat and boat?

  • Juli

    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.

  • carzy chick

    i dont seee it?!?!?!

  • I really did look like a lake.

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