Nevado de Colima rises to an altitude of 4260 m in the background. Volcanic activity migrated progressively southward from Nevado de Colima in the Late Pleistocene to where the current Volcán de Colima edifice is located. The breach in the South side of the crater was produced as a consequence of the strong activity of Volcán de Colima which occurred in July 2015 and destroyed the previous summit lava dome. The picture was taken from a reconnaissance flight carried on January 15, 2016 looking to the North-East. (Photo: PepCabré)
