...nostalgia. This is one of the best photos of Popo i have ever seen. I don't know that i have ever seen the light of a low sun captured like this, that light which is so common in that region in the afternoon. It immediately makes me homesick again; i was born and have lived many years basically in the shadow of Popocatepetl. And it looks like this photo was taken about a year before it started erupting again. That glacier used to be huge! Oh, how i hope it returns like that someday again.

Re: WOW...

I got lucky I guess. The shot was taken with a cheap $18 camera, not long before sunset, on my solo trip at age 18. Here's the trip report I posted just today if you want to read it:

This photo is a gem, looking at some present pictures Popo without glacier is not the same.
