The Profile of JFK
Do you see it? If not, try focusing your eyes on the white bushy plant at the top right corner, then slowly follow down the slope to the center of this picture and you will see a black shade of rock at a profile angle.
The profile shows the top of his head of wavy hair, down pass his eye area, to his nose and ending at his chin. In my opinion, this natural rock profile is a very good resemblance of the 35th United States President, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
