Following the narrative of this piece, Rob Laurie traipses through the desert equipped only with his sponge, fins, and a pair of reflective sunglasses. Out of the sand appears a mirage of spitting deserted barrels, sucking off a shallow ledge. However, they were not a trick of the eye caused by the refraction of light rays, and those lofty backflips are no optical illusion either.
