A fascinating optical illusion can be found at the southwestern tip of Mauritius Island. If seen from above, this part of the island seems to be melting into the ocean, forming a spectacular underwater waterfall. We owe this to a runoff of sand and silt deposits (the light-coloured portion of the water) and the downward pull of the receding waves.
This picture shows two girls standing in front of a jeans stall, but something is not right. Can you see what is going on?
This great animation shows a 2D animation of circles and lines that produces a 3D illusion, it was produced by the guys over at Bees & Bombs, check out their website its excellent.
