Volcano

“Volcanoes be in Sicily
And South America
I judge from my Geography–
Volcanoes nearer here
A lava step at any time
Am I inclined to climb–
A Crater I may contemplate
Vesuvius at Home.” Emily Dickinson

Hidden

“Nothing and no one is perfect. It just takes a good eye to find those hidden imperfections.” Daphne Delacroix

Can you see the face? I took this image back in 2008 at Masaya Volcano National Park, Nicaragua. I was reading online that it has 2 volcanos and 5 craters. This volcano is active and is a main touristic spot. In fact it is very easy to visit. You can ride on your car (from the main entrance is just a few minutes to reach the crater), you will get to a parking spot and from there walk a few steps to get a peek of the crater and its surroundings. Although on this image is hard to envision the volcano, it offers a closer look of the rocks. And I see what I call a face on the rock. Seen from the side it has one eye, a long nose, a long chin and a mouth. I hope you can see it too.
