Fuego is exceptionally rare in that it has been active at a low level for over 500 years now, since at least before the Spanish arrived in 1527 to make their capital, now called La Antigua, in the valley below.  At 12,346 ft and growing, it is also Guatemala's highest active volcano.  I have spent many nights hoping to see it erupt; it's always below freezing and windy, and sometimes Fuego does nothing but steam, but it's always worth the wait.. These are my favorite shots from over the years.
