Man unknowingly took one in a million picture and only noticed days later

Man unknowingly took one in a million picture and only noticed days later

He had no clue

In the Instagrammable world we live in today we often pull our phones out to take a snap of something that will look decent on the story.

The issue with always having a 'lit Insta story', it also leaves you with a s**t tonne of random photos you can't be bothered to delete.

However, amidst all the random photo taking, now and again, you might just be lucky enough to take that one in a million pic.

Gavin Best - who had been out walking at Cavehill, Belfast - managed to snap such a photo while enjoying the scenery on his hike.

What a lovely picture! But wait...

It's a very well put together photo, with different elements lining up and a lovely view of the surrounding landscape. But it was only when he was looking back at the image later that Gavin noticed he managed to capture an extremely unexpected moment.

While it may look like a well-composed scenic shot, eagle-eyed viewers of the image may have noticed there is actually someone on the cliff in the distance.

It seems that Gavin may have been photobombed from a long way away.

Okay, you may be thinking - so there's someone in the background, it happens all the time, big deal?

Except there's more.

If you zoom in very closely onto the figure on the clifftop, it seems that the photo was somehow timed absolutely perfectly.

You are probably familiar with the technique where people jump up in the air to take a picture. It's a common thing with big groups of people, and can be difficult to time properly.

But it seems that Gavin accidentally managed to pull this off from a big distance away.

What are the chances?

Zooming in even more reveals that the person in the background is in fact perfectly suspended from the ground. Presumably they were jumping up for another photo to be taken.

Talk about perfect timing, eh?

Gavin shared the snap on Twitter back in 2018, writing: "Took this photo a few days ago. Just spotted something in the distance and zoomed in. How's that for coincidental timing?"

However, some people were concerned about the person in the photo as they were worried they may have been trying to jump off the cliff.

But Gavin reassured them by saying that he had seen a group of people on the clifftop a few minutes later.

The photo was taken on top of Cavehill which Gavin described as 'quite a yomp' to get to.

All the same, it seems pretty clear that with views like that so close to the city it would be more than worth the yomp to the top.
