Antigua’s Volcanoes: Fuego and Acatenango

Following on from my post of Volcán de Fuego erupting here are some tranquil views of the volcano nudging its twin-peaked companion Volcán Acatenango, two of the three volcanoes surrounding Antigua.

  1. I am a bit nervous about vulcanos, but they make nice landscapes. Very nice photos.

    • Thanks Bente! Volcanoes deserve a lot of respect and they make me nervous too!

  2. Wow, Lucy….these photos leave me breathless. They are absolutely incredible and seem like some of the best I’ve seen of your lovely Antigua. What a send-off post. The first and second photos are my favorite. How did you get that purple glow of light off the building? And the volcano in black against the clouds blows me away. I also like the cars in the last photo. I am amazed at your ability Lucy! Truly genius! I may have to reblog this one if you don’t mind. Not sure if people like that or not, but I’m always trying to promote your amazing photos and work! 🙂 Hope you are well.

    • Thank you so much Nicole for your kind words! The first two are my favorites too. The purple glow is lens flare from the sun. I’m so glad you like them and of course you can reblog it! I’m also very flattered!!! I know I’ve picked up a lot of followers from you reblogging my posts and I’m very grateful to you. My last full day in Antigua tomorrow. Feeling sad.

      • Todos los cambios son un desafío nuevo y uno deja muchas cosas que vivió y toco en ese lugar que fue tu tierra por un tiempo, pero por algo a veces uno trata de ver nuevos caminos…, Te mando un fuerte saludo para ti…, estoy siguiéndote amiga…
