The Splendor of Fuego (video)

The Fuego volcano had been rumbling all day. Come dusk the gushes of lava were exploding, incandescent against the azur sky. Come night the show was simply spectacular. We drove to the foothills and took this footage, mesmerized by this privileged fiery spectacle. A few weeks before the Guatemala Philharmonic Orchestra had played in Antigua’s central plaza, as a back drop, the cathedral mystically illuminated. Bringing the music and the volcano together seemed fitting to honor this rare and grand spectacle.
