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

Active Volcano

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.

Wonderful

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.” Anne Frank
