Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

Walk on Water Optical Illusion

This is Katie, she lives in the Rideau Corridor located in the heart of eastern Ontario, Canada.

How is this possible?

Walk on Water Optical Illusion

Her owner Ken Watson says, "Everyone loves their pet dog - but can your dog walk on water? Mine can." Katie is in fact standing on water without any photo manipulation.

As a matter of fact Katie can run and fetch on water too. You see, Ken says she is posed just so because his "doggie is on high alert since a ball is about to be tossed"

The lake is actually frozen and the highest layer melted, leaving a thin sheet of water.

Mae said...

No I actually think that you took the picture just at the right time before the dog hits in the water. I think its quite clever.

Walt said...

Chris you are right the photographer took this photo on Dec 31, 2002 and it was unusually warm creating a layer of melted water that covered the ice.

Excellent job explaining it.

Tack said...

It is not a frozen lake with the top layer melted - it's too perfectly uniform and there's no signs of snow or ice on the trees and shrubberies behind - it's obviously Chris Angel's dog.

Walt said...

@Tack you could be right maybe the photographer snookered us all and this is in reality Chris Angel's dog. :)
