It is rather apparent from these two images that you are looking downhill. Down toward the people. Or the car.



It is really a very slight upslope into the image.

The people and the car are really higher up the hill than the camera.


On the same trip that we saw the white deer, we went to Spook Hill, a so called "gravity hill". The optical illusion is such that you aim your car ostensibly downhill, put it in neutral, and proceed to roll the wrong way.

The illusion is subtle and not everyone agreed that it even occurred. There are other such sites scattered around the world. There's probably one near you. So the next time you're sitting around with nothing to do, grab a friend, do some googling, and see for yourself.
