Often, the water appears to fall into an ocean, lake, bay, or other similar body of water. The illusion is most effective whenever there is a significant change in elevation, though having a natural body of water on the horizon is not a limiting factor.
An infinity pool is a special kind of seemingly edgeless swimming pool or reflection pool, where one end is lowered so that one has the impression that the water would disappear in nothingness or in infinity. In fact, the water runs over the lowered edge of an overflow into an external overflow channel. This infinity effect is particularly impressive when the water of the pool seems to merge with the water of the sea or the air of the sky.
