Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung erupted
three more times on Wednesday, sending ash thousands of feet into the air.

About 6,000 residents within a two-mile radius are staying in temporary shelters as ash and sand rains on their homes and plantations.

An aesthetic byproduct of Sinabung’s eruptions is this photo by Roni Bintang of a hibiscus flower on an ash-covered plant in nearby Mardingding village:

The red flower against the grayed backdrop of ashes is reminiscent of Salvidor Dali’s “
Meditative Rose.”

Mount Sinabung is still active, and began spewing lava this week.
