Scenic photo - not for reuse

It can be a tough business when trying to capture the perfect photograph.

But every now and then, even if you're an amateur, you manage to time everything just right and take a brilliant shot. Even if it was a fluke.

Just ask Gavin Best, who managed to achieve the shot of a lifetime without even realising it.

He was out walking with friends in Belfast on New Year's Eve, when he stopped to take a beautiful scenic photo.

But when he got home, he squinted to spot something amazing in the distance.

Did you spot it in the photo above?

"When I looked at the photos afterwards on my mobile I didn't spot anything; it was only a few days later when I was looking through the photos on my laptop that I noticed something over there, so I zoomed in," he is quoted as saying in The Mirror.

Gavin managed to capture the moment when a stranger far away jumped in the air, presumably for a different photograph.

He said: "I thought it was a hell of a coincidence that I'd happened to capture that exact moment - I hadn't even realised there was anyone over there when I took the picture.

"By pure chance the timing was perfect and it created a funny shot.

"It would be pretty mad if you managed to find them."

We need to unite this pair pronto!
