A crying face is revealed in an ice cap located on Nordaustlandet in the Svalbard archipelago in Norway.
A melting glacier has amazingly taken on the form of a face — worryingly resembling Mother Nature in tears at the state of our planet.
The stunning image shocked onlookers who felt the vivid pattern in the melting glacier looked like teary-eyed nature staring straight at them in a foreboding manner.
‘Tears’ in the natural sculpture were created by a waterfall of glacial water falling from one of the face’s ‘eyes’ and painted an alarming picture warning the world about the effects of global warming.
Marine photographer and environmental lecturer Michael Nolan captured the disturbing picture while on a recent annual icy voyage to observe the glacier and surrounding wildlife.
