Face of… Santa Claus?

Here in Portugal there's a forest fire burning through the landscape (Portugal's been hit hard by these fires in recent years), but there seems to be a little more to this particular plume of smoke...

Does that not look like a bearded face at this distance? In fact (maybe I'm just getting carried away in the spirit of the season), but I think that looks quite a lot like Santa Claus!

Thanks to Ricardo Castro.
