A double unusual event: the air quality of Mexico City was such that it allowed the view from the volcanoes Iztacihuatl and Popocatepetl, and second, heavy precipitation covered the volcanoes with more snow than usual. The picture was taken from the Institute of Ecology from the National University of Mexico.
In the foreground the Ecological Reserve of the San Angel Malpais (Reserva Ecolgica del Pedregal de San Angel), a urban reserve completely enclosed by Mexico City and last relict of the unique vegetation of the malpais of the southern of the Valley of Mexico. In the distance, the Iztacihuatl to the left and Popocatepetl to the right, respectively third and second highest elevations in Mexico (5,286 m and 5,452m). Both are part of the National Park Izta-Popo, shared between the states of Mexico and Puebla.

Tech specs: Canon 5D MkII, Canon 10-400 f 4-5.6 mm, Benro CF tripod, Acratech V2 head. 4 Pictures.
