2 hikers are “flying” across the beach, thanks to a mind-blowing optical illusion

A bizarre optical illusion makes these hikers seem like they are flying across a beach.

The walkers were filming their stroll on the sand in Schiermonnikoog, Netherlands, when high winds struck.

The gust picked up grains of sand and blew them across the beach into the direction of the oncoming pair.

When the hikers stood still the grains of sand rushed past so fast that they made the couple look as though they were flying across the sand.

The woman, who is standing ahead of the man, put her arms by her sides and bowed her head to make her flying look deliberate.

The wind was so strong that she could barely stand up and at one point lost her balance and had to take a step back.

A host of optical illusions have been sweeping the web in recent weeks, including one picture of a flock of camels.
