Picture of the Day: The Face of an Iceberg

 

THE FACE OF AN ICEBERG

In this photograph by reddit user strummingmusic, we see what looks to be the side profile of a large face on an equally large iceberg. The psychological phenomenon is known as pareidolia (the Sifter has as entire post on this entitled, 50 Faces in Everyday Objects).

The photograph was taken in Antarctica in Collins Bay between Barros Rocks and Berthelot Island (approx. 65° 19.474’S, 64° 15.560’W). In the comments, strummingmusic says he works on a tall ship called the Barque Europa as a guide; giving lectures, taking people on hikes, and capturing interesting moments like these on his camera.
