HIGH TATRAS MOUNTAINS, Slovakia — Stunning new video shot by two hikers in the remote wilderness of Slovakia was trending on Facebook Wednesday morning and once you see it you’ll know it.
The video shows the hikers walking across a beautiful frozen lake. The scene is beautiful and desolate.
But it is a few seconds into the video when the hiker holding the camera pans down to look directly down that you realize the ice is almost perfectly transparent.
As the hiker walks it begins to appear like they are walking, or hovering, above the rocks on the bottom of the lake. The illusion is both magical and eerie.
