Theme Day: The View from the Bedroom Window

Window View of Volcán de Agua

The house where my wife (Esperanza), our three cats (Lolita, Camilo and Tito) and I live has windows facing south and west. We prefer the view from the windows on the west side of the house because we can only see Gravilea and Coffee trees and birds, lots of them, But I thought you might find this vista a bit boring since you can not hear the singing of the birds or smell the sweet scent of the coffee trees. So, I decided to show the window and balcony view of Volcán de Agua, Water Volcano for you. Volcán de Agua appears in many of the photographs with a south view of town. Check the Volcanoes category for more photos or the entry Fire and Acatenango Volcanoes Wallpaper where you can consult a Google satellite map of Southern Guatemala and look at the relationship of La Antigua Guatemala and its volcanoes. I know this view could also be considered uninteresting since there are not many things going on, unlike Volcán de Fuego (Fire Volcano), but we prefer it that way. Wouldn’t you?

  • tu as une vue de carte postale. elle est superbe

    you have a sight of postcard. it is superb

  • That looks so special to me. To be able to look out and see that mountain is a feature not likely to be forgotten. Is it every covered on top with snow?

    Wouldn’t it be different if you woke up in my house and looked out the bedroom window? My site shows what you would see.

  • Sally

    I think you might just be the only daily photo blogger lookign out at a volcano!

  • Yes it’s an amazing view. About that idea to switch towns we can arrange it 🙂 but I’m afraid you will change idea after 1 week 🙁

  • Nice volcano!

    It might scare others, but it sure looks good! Is it a dormant volcano?

  • what a beatiful view. you are so lucky. if i look out my bedroom window i see another trailer!

  • You’re right, your view is very similar to that of Pamela in Tenerife. Volcano country!

    I found your coffee trees very tall? Are they cultivated that high or are these wild?

  • Herbasio

    I used to have that view of the Volcán de Agua when I was living in the south part of Guatemala City, of course, not as close as you have it but at least you get to see the volcanoes. I got to see Volcán de Fuego ‘smoking’… and yes, Volcán de Agua is a dormant volcano

    Nice view !

  • I think I never could be tired of a view like yours…

  • Serene and beautiful.

  • fabulous! Another mountain view I can envy. We have rolling hills where I am from. Very nice!

  • Fantastic,

    is it dormant, extinct, or still active?

  • Yes, a quite volcano is always the best kind of volcano. I think with your description we can do a good job of enjoying the bird song and smell of the coffee trees. Best wishes.

  • Your blog has been included in our new guide.
    Please keep us informed of any changes to it.

  • ben

    I was kind of expecting the view like this from your blog. Well done and yes it’s great view!

  • are you kidding Rudy? esta vista no es que sea interesante, es IMPRESIONANTE!! ves un volcán desde tu ventana!! yo veo edificos de hormigón y tú ves un volcán!
    Es lo curioso de este “theme day”, lo que nosotros tenemos como algo rutinario, que vemos cada mañana llega a sorprender en la tora cara del planeta… interesante verdad?
    Un saludo, y buen finde!!

    3 gatos? hay más gatos que personas Rudy… 😉

  • quite simply splendid

    This Weekend, I propose on my photo blog on Martel. Before and After.
    And amusing, I start with Delfour-Couderc drapery, it was the house of the late arrears Grandparent of Olivier (DP Evry)
    (A friend, it is him which me advises to make a blog)
    My blog photographs on the town of Martel

  • Your photos are wonderful

  • That is a picturesque view, even a soothing one since the volcano is inactive (thank goodness!).

  • juanfran

    From your balcony!

    When I saw that photograph, the one taken from your window (the volcano) my mouth freed a “wow” expression; then, when I read about the, “singing of birds and smell of the sweet scent of the coffee trees” I found myself releasing a second wow.

    But what really made me feel even impressed, is that the shot was taken from a window. Your window.
    I believe lots of people in Antigua might think they have the same, or maybe a better view!, but be sure Rudy, I can imaginary see, the proud smile drawn on your face.
    Great work, really good.

  • Olivier, thanks for the visit. It is not quite a post card view, but for sure we over sell this dormant volcano.

    Abe, I believe it gets really cold up there on top, but for sure there is no snow. Volcán de Agua is located in Guatemala, which is tropical country.

    Sally, I believe Pamela from Tenerife DP is also looking out at a volcano. Her volcano does have snow.

    Fabrizio, I don’t know about that. Your flat has an impressive view too.

    Keropokman, to be honest, I don’t know if it is dormant or extinct. We call it volcano, so it must be dormant since an extinct volcano is a mountain, right?

    Patsy, it is a nice view for sure. I hope the trailer has at least a pleasant color.

    Nathalie, long time no see around here. Actually the tall trees are the gravilea trees which provide the shadow needed by the coffee bushes which are about two meters in height.

    Herbasio, of course you could have not have a view this close from Guatemala City. We live right on the Volcán de Agua’s skirt (falda). Muchas gracias por llenar el vacio que he dejado por mi falta de internet. Hasta hoy ya tengo servicio de internet en la casa de nuevo. Ha sido un mes bastante difícil.

    Alice, you’ll get used to it, everyone does.

    Slinger, if you have rolling hills you should not envy this view. If we look west we can see an active volcano by the name of Fire (Fuego in Spanish).

    Curly, for sure I don’t know. I hope it is at least dormant.

    Denton, thanks for the visit and for sure a dormant volcano is the best kind if you live on it.

    Gerald, I will visit you new website as soon as I get a chance. Thanks for the visit and the remainder.

    Ben, thanks for the visit. Please send my greetings to your wife. I hope to get a chance to visit your blog again. I was not able to browse all the DPs because since I moved I lost my internet access; it took over a month to get another internet access provider. I promise I will visit soon. I just have to catch up.

    Dsole, sí hay más gatos que personas; es mejor así.

    Martel, I go check it out. I am glad you took Olivier’s advice.

    Chad, thanks for the visit.

    Annie, thank goodness is right! I am so glad you like it.

    Juanfran, shushhhh, pero no se lo digas a nadie.

  • I would be scared to look out a window and always see a volcano. It doesn’t matter if it was dormant or not, it’d just instill a deep fear in me.
