The deep valley cutting across the center of the photo is the elongated breached caldera of Siete Orejas volcano. It is seen here from the SE from near the summit of Santa María volcano. Light-colored areas on the caldera rim are voluminous rhyodacitic pumice deposits from Siete Orejas. Tacaná volcano on the México/Guatemala border is on the left-center horizon, and Tajumulco is visible to its right. These are the two highest volcanoes of Guatemala.
