Lady Etna

“Everything that in nature is great, everything that is pleasant, everything that is that terrible, it is comparable to the Etna and Etna is not comparable to anything." - “Voyage en Sicilie”, 1788 Dominique Vivand Denon This is a local elderly lady that I spotted on Mount Etna in Sicily. She is a cook who was on break when I saw her glaring at the horizon below. The pain and life experience in her face tells a thousand stories.
