|It was a beautiful sunny day at Lake Atitlan!|
The famous Lake Atitlan that Aldous Huxley once called "the most beautiful in the world"
is located in the mountainous Department of Solola, in the Guatemalan highlands. Lake Atitlan is a natural wonder of blue, wind-tossed waters set against a backdrop of three 10,000-foot volcanoes - Toliman, Atitlan and San Pedro - towering on the southern sky. Lago de Atitlán is 320 meters deep, the deepest lake in Central America. The surface of the Lake has a size of about 130 square kms.Their cones are covered with pine and wide leaf forest, are a refuge for endangered plants and animals. Lining the shores of Lake Atitlan are a dozen Indian villages where life and customs have changed little over the centuries.

Very interesting cloud formation. Well spotted. Always good to have a camera when you see something unusual like this. Well done. TFS
