What do you think of this photo by Megan Ahrens that she took on the morning of October 14, 2013? She insists she did not Photoshop the photo and I believe her based on her Facebook post.
People claim it looks like the Presidents are crying.
While I’m not happy with the state of the Union these days, I’m not sure it’s causing our former Presidents to cry, much less in stone.
I suspect that their faces may have been power-washed or something, and perhaps that left the staining? Like a bleaching? Or is it the natural strata in the rocks that show up under those light conditions?
Here’s an older photo under different weather conditions. You can see the lines already in place.
I’d like to hear what geologists and park rangers have to say about the purported crying picture. Personally, I think it’s a trick of the weather.
What do you think?
Til the next time!
