September 16, 2007: WTF rock over highway



I never put up an IotD unless I have reasonably good information about it. The story is usually part of its charm. Here there is no story; all I have is the image, no accompanying info. But it seemed too interesting to just leave it to our Cellar WTF Image Thread, so here's to a lazy Sunday.

argh, i hate to be the one to say this as i thought it was really cool when first saw it, but it seems very fake to me, you can see in the texture of the rock face there is multiple dublicates.. most noticable on the grass at the very top

Or there was some writing over the picture that someone removed crudely.

You can see it on the bottom over the building in the background too. Awfully sloppy to cover up some writing. Looks like they better than doubled the size of the overhang.

Looks like either a paper clip or a diving board.

Might have been 'shopped...

Maybe it's referring to the rock to the immediate left (the one real, and still sort of scary rock)?

What an amateur P-shop job!
When I account (as best I can in roughly 15 minutes) for most of the double-stamping, what I wind up with is this:



STILL an impressive roadside attraction! Why do people feel they need to "enhance" already cool pictures? I will never understand...

Nice work

Nice job Adam. Looks more like a human head in your version. Hair on top, big chin with stubblies. More interesting as a formation in your version.
