Not really "pareidolia"...

If you think you recognize that, but can't quite place it, here is a clue:

Luckily it seems he hadn't noticed you yet. I suspect you ran away shortly after taking this shot. ;)

Well, Pele is a she and isn't randomly aggressive, though she is known to be jealous and vengeful - big time - when you cross her. I did leave my position at the edge of the cliff right after the shot, but it was because the park ranger called me back behind the rope line. About a week later, the section I was standing on fell into the ocean. Gulp.
And in case it's not obvious, I had no idea about the face in the steam when I was shooting - it was just a boiling cloud - only when looking at my shots on the computer did I see it.
Finding Pele's image in clouds, steam, smoke, red-hot lava, etc. is kind of a cottage industry here - she is supposed to reveal herself in those ways. The Hawaiian gods and legends are very much attended to here, still.

t is such a great, butt embarrassing shot that I couldn't withhold it from you good folks for your appreciation. Why am I never so lucky to find and make such a shot?

You’re lucky she wasn’t using the 80d...they have problems focusing.:hiding:

I posted this one in the Photobombed thread as a joke because I'm visible in the chrome bumper. I never even noticed the creepy face in the windshield just above the sign. I can see it very clearly, and his ear even appears to extend past the center frame of the windshield. Is this pareidolia, or the face of a previous owner? I need to call Ghost Hunters! Too bad it's not 1950, I could make a fortune off this shot!

Edit: UGH! Clicking on it and enlarging only makes it more clear!
