It was all these discussions about those objects spotted on Mars, that made me wonder about natural formations here on Earth, that appear to be 'man-made'. The picture above appears to be a 'sphinx' created by nature.
Here's a few more quite interesting one's:
In Northern Ireland, the Giant’s Causeway stepping stones lead into the sea. Extremely active volcanoes spewed molten lava which solidified into a substantial plateau. Formed at least 50 million years ago, the molten magma cracked and fractured as it quickly cooled into igneous rock. These geometric stepping stones made by nature’s hand have mesmerized humans for an eternity. (top left & bottom right)
This Great Stone Face can be found in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Formed by glaciers millions of years ago, The Old Man in the Mountain resides 1200 feet up with stone shelves that are 25 feet wide and 40 feet tall. A face, a jagged and craggy profile, is visible when seen at the correct angle. The Old Man of the Mountain is made up of a series of five granite cliff ledges. What Mother Nature created, the human eye sees as a face-like stone formation. (top right)
Near Gujarat India, in a breathtaking land of cave temples, this rock formation was found. Gujarat civilization is thought to date back from 3000 to 1500 BC. This ancient natural rock formation has rested, untouched, for untold thousands of years. Brightly colored and carefully sculpted by nature over time, the textures and patterns in this rock appear as if it were a human footprint. (middle left)
Spotted via satellite in Varna, Bulgaria, this unique geological formation looks like a Stone Forest. The Bulgarian name for these rocks is “Pobitite Kamani” which means stones beaten into the ground. These white rock formations, a fabulous natural phenomena, may date back some 270 million years. The stones are clustered together in some places and spread apart in others as if the forest were seeded eons ago. Tall rocks look like trees made of stone, broken and fallen with age. Once again, to the eyes of man it appears as if man-made, but nature created an illusion of a forest made of stone. (bottom left)
Yonaguni Island is a part of Japan’s Ryukyu archipelago.
In 1986 under the water around it were discovered what some people say are the ruins of an ancient civilization and others believe it is only natural formations.
I wonder, looking at the various objects put forward about Mars, is nature having a laugh on us!
If you can image, that man never built a 'sphinx', would we hold that rock formation in such awe? (top picture) or are our minds seeing 'man-made' structures because we have built similar?
This striking image is from:
Click image for the link to Google Maps. Zoom out and look at the surrounding areas. Is this a natural formation, or proof that the ancient Native Americans were aliens who foretold the coming of the iPod. Did they create this monument to the future which they knew would one day be seen on Google Maps by YOU on my blog?
The details given for Google Maps are:
+50° 0' 38.20", -110° 6' 48.32"
Near: Township Road 123A
Walsh, AB T0J 3L0, Canada 1.5 km W
any members from Canda know/heard about this? is it for real?

Thanks for that info and link!
I liked the end quote (reference my OP):
While neat to look at, this feature is simply an artifact of weathering and erosion, only seen from above under certain lighting conditions, and an example of something called pareidolia. It's similar to the infamous face on Mars and other features people have claimed to see in satellite images of the Moon and Mars.
