It looks like a scene from a Sci-Fi movie – but this isn’t actually a giant jellyfish.

The clever perspective used in the stunning shot makes the beast look menacing as it floats just below the surface of the water, seemingly yards from a trio of unsuspecting surfers.

The jellyfish was spotted floating in the Mediterranean off the coast of Calafell in Catalunya, Spain, and was photographed by Spanish banker and cocktail bar owner Jordi Castells.

The 42-year-old said: “When I have free time I love to go to the sea and take pictures.

“I’m lucky enough to live here and have the beach right at the front of my house. Every year we get to see a large number of jelly fish.

“On this occasion I managed to capture some guys at the paddle surf school and a jellyfish swimming past just under the surface.

“It’s a perfect example for me of what it means to be friends and enjoy nature.”
