The twin volcanoes of Acatenango (left) and Fuego rise in the center beyond Lake Atitlán, with the conical peak of Agua volcano to their left.  Lake Atitlán fills the latest of three large calderas produced during the Pleistocene at Atitlán.  A steam plume originates from the summit of Fuego, one of Guatemala's most active volcanoes.
