Destinations as beautiful as visual illusions and disappointing reality

 Located in Namib – Naukluft Park in Namibia, Deadvlei is a white clay pan with hundreds of dead acacia trees scattered throughout the area. When the Sun shines down on the dunes at dawn, the scene of Deadvlei is as magical as a painting. However, when changing the light and shooting angle, this place is no different from normal arid deserts.

At The Wave in Arizona, USA, the sandstone massifs look very deep and the surface seems to be in constant motion, but not all rock formations create an illusion effect. Even so, the geological beauty of The Wave has a great attraction for visitors. To protect this natural wonder destination , only 20 people are allowed to visit each day.

From the front angle, the Rakotzbrucke bridge in Germany is reflected in the lake to form a perfect circle, making the scene beautiful like a fairyland. It is also at the bridge, but at a different angle, you will not see any circles and Rakotzbrucke is no different from ordinary bridges.

Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is the largest salt flat in the world. The vast expanse of pristine white salt is the perfect setting to create an optical illusion. Tourists often place toys or other everyday items in the front and pose in the back. With a remote angle, the photo becomes interesting with people looking shorter than these objects. On the other hand, the salt desert is also one of the major lithium deposits with 15% of the world's reserves, according to the US Geological Survey. The destination has an on-site operating lithium plant. Bulldozers and tall piles of salt obscure the straight skyline of Salar de Uyuni.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa with a tilt of about 3.99 degrees is a tourist symbol of Italy. Tourists come here often take photos at an angle to look like they are supporting the whole tower. In the same space, changing the shooting angle, you will see a long line of people posing similarly to support the tower.

Around the second week of February every year, when the Sun shines down on Horsetail waterfall in Yosemite National Park, USA, the right angle will make the water surface glow orange-red, looking like volcanic lava erupting. Outside of that time, when there is no special effect of sunlight, no visual illusion, Horsetail waterfall returns to normal like other waterfalls in nature.

Looking down from above, the coast on the island of Mauritius off the Indian Ocean looks like a waterfall submerged in the sea. However, when viewed from the shore, you won't see any similar kind of visual illusion
