Closeup of a water stain located near one of the large patches on the Shroud. Note the trail of scorch extending beyond the patch at the top of the image. The sharp verticle mark toward the left side of the image is a crease in the cloth. Most water stains on the Shroud are from the water used to douse the 1532 fire.
