Santa Maria is seen here from Siete Orejas volcano. The SW (right-hand) flank of Santa María is slightly influenced by the profile of the massive crater produced by the 1902 eruption. The forested peak on the lower NE flank of Santa María is Volcán del Valle, an eroded scoria cone. Behind it is Santo Tomás volcano. Light-colored pumice deposits from the 1902 Santa María eruption and a Pleistocene eruption of Siete Orejas volcano are visible in the foreground.
