The Crying Glacier

This striking image of a crying glacier (a perfect example of pareidolia) is from a melting glacier in in the Arctic ice cap of Norway. Marine photographer and environmental lecturer Michael Nolan snapped the photos:

At first glimpse it looks like any other glacier you might find in the freezing Arctic wastes of Norway.

But on closer inspection an eerie face is depicted in the melting ice wall that appears to be crying a river of tears.

The forlorn-looking 'Mother Nature' figure appeared to locals during a thaw, with the melting ice and snow falling towards the sea below.

The striking image of the Austfonna ice cap, located on Nordaustlandet in the Svalbard archipelago, would seem certain to be heavily used by environmentalists protesting against climate change.

You people are disgusting. Shame on you all to take this so lightly. Don't you see the irony and symbolism revolving around this urgent cry for change? Ever since I came across this image, a strong feeling of self-awarness flashed before my mind.

If yo come to think of it, why do you think there's so many natural disasters lately? Mother Nature suffers more and more each day, and she's taking her rage out on the world.
