Pareidolia

How about that for a title?

Wikipedia says Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus being perceived as significant.  Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in the clouds, the man in the moon, and hearing hidden messages on records played in reverse.

Below is an example of Pareidolia I found in the rocks.  Do you see it?


Reminded me of Easter Island.

I've been looking at the photo more and the hill side to the left of the man looks like a huge smiling lizard or monster.

LOL. I've always enjoyed Pareidolia.

I've always wanted to visit Easter Island Megan. Since I was a child the area has entranced me.

That is a fantastic photo! As soon as I saw it was I drawn to the face on the rock.
