Photographer Captures The Moment Elvis' Face Appears In Wave
A photographer caught the moment a crashing wave took on an uncanny resemblance to Elvis Presley. Now, I bet that is a sentence you didn't think you'd be reading today, isn't it?
Jordan Crosby was out taking snaps as the surf was crashing against the Seaham Lighthouse in Country Durham with winds of up to 65mph battering the coast and leaving things all shook up (sorry).
He spent around half an hour taking shots and video footage at sunrise on Friday and his efforts paid off with some incredible photos - no more so than one that appeared to show the King of Rock and Roll looming down over the sea.
Jordan says it wasn't until he got home that he noticed he had inadvertently caught a wave that resembled Elvis, in profile, emerging from the ocean, complete with his trademark quiff.
Jordan, 26, of Hartlepool, said: "It was pretty wild out there so I thought it would make for some dramatic pictures.
"I pulled out my winter coat for the first this year and headed up there at sunrise to see what I could get.

"The forecast was for 40mph winds and the waves were meant to be 50ft or 60ft. It was certainly ferocious.
"The images aren't really that technically difficult to get, it was more about dealing with the weather, and after 30 minutes I headed home to see what the pictures were like.
"When I put them online somebody said you can see Elvis' face in one of the waves.
"I thought he was having me on, but once you see it you can't miss it. Sure enough there he was emerging from the sea.
"You can see his quiff really well, then a nose and his face.
"It's amazing really, everybody loves Elvis so to capture an image of The King was really special."
The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings as heavy rain and 65mph winds have been forecast in parts of the UK today - which is definitely enough to ruin your blue suede shoes if you get caught in it.
