But on closer inspection an eerie face is depicted in the melting ice wall that appears to be crying a river of tears.
The forlorn-looking 'Mother Nature' figure appeared to locals during a thaw, with the melting ice and snow falling towards the sea below.
The striking image of the Austfonna ice cap, located on Nordaustlandet in the Svalbard archipelago, would seem certain to be heavily used by environmentalists protesting against climate change.

A new Forensic Photoshop Program Might Explain If Iconic 2009 Tabloid Photo of "Crying Face on Glacier Wall" is Fake. yes, FourMatch is an extension for Adobe Photoshop that instantly analyzes
any open JPEG image to determine whether it is an untouched original
from a digital camera. Now, you can quickly identify files that have
not previously been edited.
By instituting a controlled workflow that requires the submission of
pristine camera originals, you can easily flag images that require
How it works: FourMatch leverages the fact that there is nearly
endless variety to exactly how hardware and software products can
choose to store a JPEG file. This variety results in a distinctive set
of “signatures” from each hardware and software product. Once an image
has been edited and resaved from a software product, this signature is
changed to match the software rather than the original capture device.
Thus, when a file signature correctly matches a known signature from
the device that captured the photo, you can be confident that the
photo has not been edited.
The power of the FourMatch database: Fourandsix has built a database
of more than 70,000 signatures representing more than 2,400 camera
models and mobile devices, as well as signatures from a variety of
image editing programs and online services. When you purchase a copy
of FourMatch, you’re also purchasing access to this valuable database,
which is updated frequently as new devices become available. Loaded
with this database, FourMatch can quickly assess the authenticity of
