Volcán de Fuego (“Volcano of Fire”) is an active stratovolcano in Guatemala. It is close to the city of Antigua Guatemala. It has erupted frequently since the Spanish conquest. “Fuego” is famous for being almost constantly active at a low level. Smoke issues from its top daily, but larger eruptions are rare. The last eruption occurred in 2006. The volcano is joined with Acatenango and collectively the complex is known as La Horqueta. (Source: Wikipedia)
I like the graphic, almost an illustration, feel of this photograph. Also, it lends itself as a wallpaper for your desktop PC, Mac or Linux workstation with its clean lines.
To download the image as wallpaper, all you need to do is click the photo above and you will be taken to a larger-size image that you can download. The rest depends on the operating system you use.
Since the volcanoes Agua, Fuego and Acatenango show up often in the background of many of the photos I present here, I decided to give you a satellite view of the volcanoes and their close relationship to La Antigua Guatemala. Below you will find a screen capture of Google Maps that shows the volcanoes. Click this link to go to Google Maps and zoom in even further into the volcanoes or even Antigua Guatemala.
I hope you enjoy this particular view of Southern Guatemala. Don’t forget to click on the image below to get a larger version so you can read the call outs.
