Can you spot hidden skis in this beach illusion in less than 28 seconds?

Quickly finding a pair of skis in this tropical optical illusion says a lot about the slopes of your mind.

A busy beach scene with red lounge chairs, palm trees, umbrellas, dolphins and an airplane features sporty winter gear tucked away in plain sight like that of a Where’s Walter illustration.

If you’re smart enough to find the skis in 28 seconds or less, you’ll become a “record holder,” according to The Sun.

But be warned: A number of crabs and starfish have been inserted into the sand to make the illusion more difficult to solve, the outlet reported.

Okay, get your stopwatch ready and – go!

It's a busy beach scene, but there's an optical illusion of skis hidden in the sand.

Having trouble? You’re not alone. The skis are in the lower left of the photo and are camouflaged by blending them with a chair back.

Optical illusions like these are a fun distraction, but they can also have scientific value for medical professionals. They can help researchers shed light on the inner workings of the human mind — and how it responds to its surroundings.

“We usually take perception for granted and rarely think about the hard work that underlies everyday tasks, such as seeing a cup of coffee in front of us,” says Dr. Gustav Kuhn, a psychologist and human cognition expert at Goldsmiths University in London, previously told The Sun about how important illusions are to our understanding of brain function.

The confusing illusion joins a long list of optical tricks that confuse puzzle players.
