IT'S A FAKE PHOTO, AFTER ALL!!!

I recently received a comment from a fellow blogger related to one of my posts about a so called "Photo of the Year". I checked his/her info and the truth is that the photo is totally fake.

Therefore, this photograph that has been circulating on the internet showing a shark leaping out of the water to attack a helicopter, is a fake. The composite image, which claims to be National Geographic's "Photo of the Year," was spliced together from a U.S. Air Force photo taken near San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge and a photo of a shark from South Africa.

You can access the photo at my previous post on
