The challenge this week called for a photo of things or people grouped together. I have chosen to share one photo depicting people and one depicting things. The first captures two of the students at the special needs school where I volunteer. They are always together and when they saw me pull out my iPhone to take photos they immediately embraced each other.
The above is one of the most majestic groupings of the natural world that I’ve ever seen. There’s something truly grand about these volcanoes being so close together. After scaling a neighboring mountain at about 4 a.m. I watched the morning mists lift and the sun rise over these beautiful volcanoes. If you look along the left edge of the photo you can see the last remnants of the receding morning fogs making their way across the “Sea of Sand”, and just to the left of Mt. Batok you can see the Poten Hindu Temple.
