Canadian Photographer Captures Stunning Image Of A Wild Wave With A Face: “Looks Like Poseidon” | Abroad

Among the more than 10,000 photos Canadian photographer Cody Evans took of some raging waves earlier this month immediately caught my eye. For example, he manages to capture a shot of a wave that appears to have a man’s face at the perfect moment. Therefore, the striking image reminds Evans of the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon.

Over the past two years, Canadian Cody Evans has regularly traveled to Lake Erie in the Canadian province of Ontario to take pictures of the raging waves. The nature photographer also wanted to snap some new photos earlier this month. “It was very cold, -11 degrees or so,” he told the Canadian Press. “I noticed the water and as soon as there were waves, I took a series of pictures.” According to Evans, the waves were twenty feet high that day.

When the photographer reviewed his photos a little later, he couldn’t believe his eyes. For example, one of the imaged waves appears to have a face. “It really overwhelmed me. You often see all kinds of things in waves and clouds, but it was surreal to have them so clearly visible on screen,” Evans said proudly.

But how can this phenomenon be explained? According to Canadian meteorologist Daniel Liotta, the giant wave is due to the “November winds”. These storms over marine areas with a force of more than 64 km / h. “The Great Lakes are relatively warm at this time of year compared to the air above. This results in very strong storms over the water,” says Liotta. Because of the strong winds, there are of course more waves. However, this phenomenon is not uncommon, he stresses. The expert says, “It comes back every year.”
