When we put the call out last year for your photos of natural rock sculptures, our office was inundated with amazing images - most of which we never knew existed. All around Newfoundland and Labrador - and beyond - you'll find rocks and cliffs that appear to be more than they are. Here are just some of the uncanny images we received. (Click the thumbnails to get a closer look.) For more, see the March 2009 issue of Downhome magazine.
Can you see two faces in the rocks? Hint: one is winking at you and the other has red hair!

"I've walked along this road that we call the "Rock Cut" many times in my life, but never noticed this "Greek God" until last summer. One day my friend Colleen and I were walking along, and suddenly, there he was. Can't believe we didn't notice him before."

A Head in the Cliff
"This is a picture taken after some of the cliff had fallen in. This was taken looking towards Quarry Point in Glace Bay, NS. It looks like a man with a goatee in the side of the cliff."

A Cranky Character
"This rock sculpture is found coming up from or going down to Petty Harbour-Maddox Cove (the best view is coming up from Petty Harbour). This old man (my boys think he looks more like the charactor from The Incredibles movie) overlooks the pond just before you head into Petty Harbour, close to the Hydro dam. It is fairly big in size and we comment on him everytime we go past him."
