Woman appears to 'take flight' in photo shoot on Burnham beach!

Burnham-On-Sea provides the backdrop for this incredible 'Mary Poppins' inspired photo... but all is not quite what it seems.

A group of over a dozen professional photographers from Bristol held a photo shoot on the beach near the town's lighthouse on Sunday.

And while Burnham's sea breezes often feel as though they'll take you off your feet, they weren't to blame on this occasion!

Instead, the scene was created all down to the power of photo-editing software. A step ladder and box were digitally removed to create the appearance of the person floating in the air.

"Our photographers visited from across the Bristol area, setting up various levitation-themed scenes as part of a challenge with Burnham's beach and lighthouse in the background," a spokesman told

"It was a great evening for the shoot - the beach is always a great backdrop - and there was only a gentle breeze!"
