Lake Atitlan in Panajachel - an area which has come to be known also as Gringotenango (place of the Gringos) in Guatemala is a gorgeous but small lake ringed by impressive volcanoes, including these two.

Mark, thanks for sharing the photo - it brought me back some nice memories about a special person from there.
The photo itself is good - nice colors and details, but it looks overshaped and noised!

Photo is little bit noisy but you have captured a very nice scene.

Great shot, I love the shades of blue and the cloud tablecloth over the mountain. It all looks very inviting, especially viewed here from Islamabad at the moment. Cheers!

Nice shot Mark. I have photographed this scene many times over many years and know the difficulty of getting that "just right day" where the humidity in the air doesn't cause a problem. Nice to get Cerro del Oro in the foreground of the volcanoes. You captured the "blue" of the Lake well. People rarely understand why local artists give the lake a dramatic blue "hue". You just have to be there on the right day! You were.
