Warrior in the Mist

Here is the picture my mom took at Whakarewarewatanga in Rotorua, New Zealand. Can you see the face in the steam? I love this picture.

For more on what it means to be Maori, see Athena's site.

The name of that river is just cruel!

That is awesome. It looks like a lion with full mane to me.

B - They said my mom caught a lucky shot.

EW- Yes considering that Wh is pronounced F in Maori. It is shortened by locals to Whaka - gah!
I much prefer saying Whangamata - (Fung-a-muh-tah)it just rolls right off the tongue.

Summer - I can't see the lion, help me.

holy macaroni, you really can see a face. how spooky is that?!

Okay, maybe I'm just weird.
I see the two holes for eyes, above that is the mane (poofy white), the nose pulls down into a pucker (rock slightly visible) like a cats or lions.

I think I'm spatially challenged, I still can't see the lion, just a wide face. I see a mouth in the rocks just under the nose.
