Saw a real life optical illusion in Banff today 😱

Speaking about the amazing optical illusion with Daily Mail, Colin McCallum said, “When I first saw the boat, I had to do a double-take because I genuinely thought it was floating. Upon further inspection, however, I noticed that it was in fact just a remarkable optical illusion.”

“It was caused by a cloud formation closer to the shore which changed the colour of the water closer to the land. The boat, being further away, was in a cloudless area and therefore the sky reflected the sea- making it look like the boat was floating,” he added.

And here’s what the comments said on the viral Facebook post:

“I genuinely can’t understand what is going on here,” a Facebook user said.

“That’s brilliant,” another comment said.
