I don't think so, the nude dude is in front of some rocks, and it's not easy to see the horizon behind him. The ripple patterns in the water seem to line up.

Looks like photoshop to me, the difference in rock size is too big compared to the boys in front...it just doesn't look right Edit: also the sky...I really have my doubts, everything right of that boy with the hat seems to be off

Re: Naked hiker spotted on holidays...

Here's a blown-up version (as if you needed it) to show the horizon is aligned.

Unless I am missing the joke, the horizon is definitely not aligned.

It isn't horizontally flat, but it is aligned and level.

Re: Naked hiker spotted on holidays...

The shadows cast by the sun line up. And as the sun is behind the rocks on the right of the picture, they appear under-exposed (unlike the man).

Re: Naked hiker spotted on holidays...

I'm intrigued by the large cross on the rocks behind the bloke.... wonder if that's where he's buried his clothes?
