Amazing photo! Ocean wave image looks like man's face

The strong storms that have lashed the European coast have produced some big waves and powerful images — perhaps none more striking than one captured by a lucky photographer in West Dorset, England.

In the photo, the spray from a 30-foot wave takes the shape of a bearded man's face, with nose, lips and chin clearly visible.

The image was taken by Simon Emmett, who was taking photographs of waves breaking at the Cobb, a man-made harbour in the coastal town Lyme Regis.

Initially, Emmett didn't notice the wave face. Only later, when he looked again, did he realise his photo included the foamy profile.

The storms have spawned other dramatic footage.

One passenger on the stalled train shot footage of waves pounding against the train's windows.
