The SW corner of Ilopango caldera is visible in the foreground with the outskirts of the capital city of San Salvador in the middle distance.  The high peak on the left horizon to the NW is El Picacho, part of the San Salvador volcanic complex, a historically active volcano overlooking the capital city.  Below it to the left is San Jacinto, a Pliocene lava dome complex.  The low peak on the upper right horizon is Cerro Nejapa, a Pliocene volcano in the Interior Valley of El Salvador.
