I put this in chat but this might be a better place for it here ?  Interested to hear what people think :


I am not sure where to put this ... its about interesting and unusual landforms of totemic / magical significance, sacred sites etc (please move it if there is a specific forum)

This picture recently appeared on the internet, no one has been able to get an angle and distance shot, until now, that reveals what is special about this 'mountain' .

I am being elusive as some insist it is imagination ( from the photo) or cant see anything unusual ... in real life it much clearer and easily visible from my front garden.

So I will leave it here and see what comments it attracts

Pareidolia or cleverly air brushed. A contemporary image would be nice. This looks 100-150 years old.

"An atheist, like a Christian, holds that we can know whether or not there is a God. The Christian holds that we can know there is a God; the atheist, that we can know there is not. The Agnostic suspends judgment, saying that there are not sufficient grounds either for affirmation or for denial."

Not airbrushed (as I can see it every day ) .     Pareidolia  apparently as it appears so clear to me, but not all.  Its been recognised there for a long time as the Aboriginals first saw it and it has a mythology.

Did you have a Pareidoliac experience?  I am interested to know what others see.

I feel a bit cold looking at that but never been to the location.
Notice that there is a man's face in the green hill?

I see some faces throughout the photo with the most prominent one being at the top of the mountain and just to the left. Appears as an older man as I see a beard on him.

Not sure if this is what your asking about or not. I do enjoy looking at the picture though.

Nice landscape.  Looks completely natural to me.  I've seen hills similar to that traveling through Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia.  I seriously don't see any faces whatsoever.

Again, what's the point of this pic?

First off can you supply links to qualify your statement of "This picture recently appeared on the internet, no one has been able to get an angle and distance shot, until now"

The image appears to be from 'Thora' New S'th Wales, as seen on this link

http://www.timaickin...g2_itemId=17113

The website it was taken from is simply a photographers website, no woowoo spoken of

Perhaps its only 'you' who see's something odd, but if you can find the links discussing it Id be pleased to see them

That;s sorta immaterial ... lets say, I have never seen one before. The best view spots now have trees growing in front of them. To my surprise ( I was talking to Tim the other day) and he just stopped on the road side and took the pics (stitched together later) .  Clarity comes due to time of year and day (angle of light and weather conditions). He took the pic a couple of years back apparently, it just has never come up before, but that day I used an unusual combo of words in my search.

So, yes, there may be similar pictures out there before, but the others I have seen never captured the old man with the beard so well. Still, to me. it seems relativle obscure, on some days it is very clear and distinct.

yes, I know the location (and I was going to get to that ... as I said, I can see it very clearly from my front garden, my view is more to the north, more of a portrait than a  profile.

Nungali Yulladahra  - Old Man Dreaming.

'  Long time back (in Gumbaynggirr country - which includes what we call today Thora and * - see below)  some of the mob camped where the two rivers meet. The men decided to go and hunt for some meat, the women would gather  food and supplies around the camp and stay with the children, they left old Nungali to watch and make sure everything was okay. But old Nungali didnt fulfill his duty, he  decide to go up the hill a bit where he could 'watch', sat down and leaning against a tree, fell asleep.

Later he got woken up by the men. "Hey! Why are you asleep, you were supposed to be watching the women and children, where are they?"

"Oh , just down at the river."

"No they are not!"

They go down and after examining the footprints realise that they have been raided by the Camiloroy ( an unrelated group from the western plateau that could access Gunbaynggirr country by coming down into it at the head of the valley at the west). All the women and children had been stolen.

Then ....  the old man was cast into the mountain (here I have heard two versions) either as a sign ( he is still asleep and dreaming ... old man dreaming ) of what happened, or a warning of what can happen , or  he is set as a watcher over the welfare of women and children ... and that is his 'dreaming' (in the aboriginal sense - more like his 'dharma' ) .

The whole valley is very female. Many people, especially single women, come here to give birth and many move on after a few months. I have a traditional birthing pool in the river near me. Twice I have camped out while I let a single homeless mum stay in my cabin, for post natal recovery. I have lost count of the number of kids born here. I have even met young adults wandering around as tourists on our property and at the river , who were born here but have come back to see it.

Indigenous Australia is covered with land forms like this and netwroked with spiritual connections whose visuals are 'laid down' in country ( and the landforms in it).

Thanks for being patient .... I didnt want to start with "Who can see a face in the top right? "

Too suggestive.

There is no man-face in that hill.

Its a strange world.

You seem quiet sure it sint there ... yet others see it ?   Did you read the link to the National Park reference ?  Its virtually billed as a tourist attraction .

Here's the thing ....

Two visitors are in my garden, they know nothing of it. One sees it and is flabbergasted, says he has never seen such an accurate rock formation that depicts, well anything, so clearly, let alone a face .... he was very blown away .  His mate is " Where ... what do you mean, I cant see anything."

The whole thing was pointed out to him ; "See that ridge there?"

"Yeah"  

"Well, thats the brow, beneath that, see the two dark spots, thats his eyes,... "

"No ... I dont get it ... I cant see it ... "

...  I left it to them to sort out  :)

( maybe shrink the image on the screen a little  if it is coming up big ?)

Thank you for posting the links in this thread, the picture and this story. All very fascinating and I must say I cannot stop looking at the picture. I just love it and agree with RedHowler, its cold in appearance, but to me it has a warm feeling about it as well.
