The creepy story of a family holiday in Australia and an eerie image of a gigantic great white shark swimming behind a wife and husband while scuba diving turned out as one of the most popular shark images on the Internet, mostly due to cleaver use of Photoshop.

The story itself tells about a family on a holiday in Australia when husband, wife and their 15 year old son went scuba diving.
