The old man in the sea: elderly man’s face forms in a wave as weather bomb batters British coast

This amazing picture looks like an elderly man’s face has appeared in a face batters the British coast – but is it God or Scrooge?

As if saying bah humbug in the run up to Christmas, the old man swells up in the waves off the Isle of Islay off the west of Scotland.

Is it God or Scrooge?

The incredible image was snapped by Ron Steenvoorden while out walking near Port Wemyss on the south-western tip of the Hebridean island.

Ron, 54, said: “It does like a little bit like Ebenezer Scrooge.

“I hadn’t noticed the face before I took the picture, then when I got home I saw it.

“It was almost impossible to stand up outside.

“We only moved from the Netherlands two months ago so we’ve never seen waves like this before.

“Other people on the island say this is the worst they’ve ever seen.”
