THIS sad face, eerily etched into melting Arctic ice, has been dubbed Mother Nature in Tears by astonished environment experts.
The weeping image was "sculpted" by water pouring from a glacier retreating under the effects of global warming.
Lecturer Michael Nolan captured the photo at Norway's Austfonna ice-shelf. The glacier has been vanishing at the rate of 160ft a year for 12 years.
Michael, from Arizona, US, regularly visits the area. He said: "Every summer there is less ice.
I was struck by this image of a face - a saddened, motherly face, crying about our inability to reduce global warming."
