Weekly Photo Challenge. Earth

I liked the words of this Weekly Challenge: “As far as we currently know, our planet is unique in its ability to sustain life. We are an island in an unimaginably huge universe… I have always regarded nature with reverence…”.

In my opinion, our planet deserves all our respect. We live by what the Earth offers to us. It is extremely unwise to continue mistreating our planet. Our future and, above all, those who succeed us, depends on it.

Montserrat. Catalonia.

Montserrat is a multi-peaked mountain located near the city of Barcelona, in Catalonia. It is part of the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range. The Caribbean island of Montserrat was named by Christopher Columbus after the mountain.

It is well known as the site of the Benedictine abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat, which hosts the Virgin of Montserrat sanctuary and which is identified by some  with the location of the Holy Grail in Arthurian myth.

“Montserrat” literally means “saw (serrated, like the common handsaw) mountain” in Catalan. It describes its peculiar aspect with multitude of rock formations which are visible from a great distance. The mountain is composed of strikingly pink conglomerate, a form of sedimentary rock.
