I assume the next part is where he gets out of the car, rubs, his eyes, and pours the contents of his bottle of booze onto the ground.

A BEMUSED Scot

That's all I need to know: these are the people who named themselves after a whisky. Photographer and camera were drunk.

If you really look closely, you can see the wall of fog causing the illusion. You can barely make out the horizon behind the ship and once you see that it all makes sense. No photoshop required for this little ditty.

Ships appear to fly over the water all the time... it's called a fata morgana.

Flying tanker? Big step up from a submarine.

That's not a Fata Morgana. It's just a false horizon. The horizontal line well below the ship isn't the horizon; it's just a transition from rough water to smooth. The real horizon has been hidden by fog.

Unfortunately, they'll say that this invalidates the pictures of ships partially below the horizon as evidence that the Earth is round.

Oh, sorry. Assumed it was your native language. You did good then!!

Here's what I was expecting: ...ship's captain flunked physics.

English is weird.
