This is a vulcano near my city, because it is active (hot) it is no common to see it with snow, but yesterday we had a big storm and we waked up with this view.

Just trying my new KM 5D + Sigma 70-210mm f2.8. Handheld

Excellent shot. Is that a church below the volcano?

The church is about 20 Km away from the center of the vulcano. It was built over a prehispanic pyramid.

When the spanish conquestors came to Mexico, they destroyed the pyramids or covered them with ground and built churches over them, in an attempt to disappear the religion and impose the Catholic religion.

This town (Cholula) was the most important religious center in Mexico before the conquest. I suppose it should be great to see the pyramid instead the church.

Anyway... here is a different view. Some pp to disappear an electrical cable between me and the vulcano
