Nobody at my office could solve this puzzle – can you spot what’s wrong with this picture?

I’ve always loved brain teasers. I’ve been solving puzzles ever since I could walk, and I don’t think I’ll ever really stop.

They help you relax, they’re fun and they’re also great for staying sharp!

Whenever my grandchildren come to visit, we always spend some time solving puzzles together. They especially love picture riddles and neat optical illusions.

These days, kids are always tapping away at their smartphones, so anything that pulls them away from the screen for a few minutes is a win in my book! Technology does so much of our work for us in this modern world, so we need to be challenged in order to keep our brains alert and sharp!

I found this picture riddle online earlier this week. It’s great, and I had to think for a long while before I finally figured out the right answer. I found it at Brightside and immediately I showed it to 5 of my colleagues. Not one of them could solve it right off the bat! But after giving them a clue, they started figuring it out.

1 thing wrong with this picture

The image depicts a dock, a ship and some other things. But something is very wrong. Your task is to figure out what that is!

Think carefully – no need for clues yet!

Can you spot what’s wrong with this picture?

Remember, the 5 people I tried this on had a real tough time solving it, so don’t fret if you don’t get it right away.

Challenge your friends

If you want a clue, then I’ll just mention that the ship is the key to the whole thing. Now have another look and see if you can figure it out!

If you haven’t got it yet, here’s the solution!

The dock entrance is far too narrow for the ship, so it can’t leave and couldn’t have entered. Not a chance!
