A friend of mine Matt, sits in silent contemplation at Australia’s most easterly craggy rocks. Although “horizon illusion” typically refers to the effect where the moon is appears bigger when it’s close to the horizon (it isn’t), I’ve also thought that at higher vantage points, the watery horizon appears to paradoxically be above you. This feeling is sometimes felt when you see the sea for the first time coming over a hill, and the horizon appears to be above you in the distance. Byron and Lennox are good examples for this illusion (if it is one), and I often feel like the pacific ocean is looming above me as I look out from the lookout or the main car-park. I could of course, just be dreaming.
