Photographer's Note

it was easy to decide on the "opening photo" from our last week's trip to Guatemala - a view from the slopes of the active Pacaya volcano towards Volcán de Agua, Volcán de Fuego and Acatenango. I was close to collapsing after scrambling for about an hour up the Pacaya's dry lava, and was seriously cursing myself for dragging a DSLR with me, big lens and all. but I have to admit that this view was worth the effort, worth my buised arms and ruined pants that literally disintegrated on the sharp edges of the lava rocks.

the trip was great. and unusual, for out of more than 1000 photos I have only about 25% are landscapes. the rest, surprisingly enough, are portraits.

RAW, ISO 200, spot metering, 20mm focal length.
