Yesterday morning while leaving Antigua for the beachside town of Monetricco, Daniel and I were treated to an awesome sight. The active Volcan de Fuego (Volcano of Fire) was erupting and spewing smoke and ash into the sky. The driver of our shuttle stopped for everyone to get a good look and I jumped out to take this quick shot. The driver had pulled over behind some trees so I had to run down the road a little ways in order to get any sort of view at all. I’m sure the locals who were around got a kick out of this crazy gringo running down the road with a camera to take a picture of something they see all the time. Unfortunately the shot is out of focus and not the most composed thing ever but I’m sure I’ll get better at dealing with spur of the moment things like this as the trip goes on and I get used to my new camera. This shot is of the first cloud of smoke from the eruption but there were a few more afterwards. It was truly a great thing to see!
