This is a perfect post for the joyous day of the rescue of the miners. As I write this the third miner has been brought to the surface. We shall hope that the rescue of the remaining miners is also successful.

Hehehe! Tinhas que lá ter estado! Só falta mesmo teres uma foto a 700m de profundidade! :)

Wow, so desolate a place.

God help those miners get out of the earth safely, all of them.

It was wonderful news to hear of the miners' rescue!

This photograph reminds me very much of the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado! I wonder if these sand dunes were formed in the same fashion over the same period of time. A truly fine picture!

Jose, glad to have you back. I hope your own journey was a joyful one. A stunning tribute to a happy occasion. But I must agree with those who feel the media, in its myopic focus on this one case, failed to profit from the attention to create awareness of the general plight of miners around the globe.
