Default Surfer and shark in wave photograph

I keep getting told about these (apparently) fantastic set of photos that have been going around via email. One of the pictures is of a surfer surfing on a wave, and there is a shape of a shark in the wave right behind him. Another photo has a person holding out their hands, and it looks as if they are holding the sun. I really want to see these pics! Does anyone have them? If so, please forward them to me!!

my email is: tombellchambers<at>hotmail.com

cheers!!

Actually it's just an optical illusion caused by the bending of the light as it passes the water layer to the air layer. The actual size of the dolphin is about a foot in length.



Oh! You guys are talking about the mammal dolphin! I though you were talking about the fish dolphin.
