Fuego volcano Dec 2015 - strong strombolian activity and pyroclastic flow deposits

Our recent Guatemala volcano tour coincided with the beginning of another (the 14th in 2015) paroxysm at Fuego volcano, which we observed from close during 29 Dec - 1 Jan. We used two different viewpoints at the base of the volcano, at approx. 5 and 7 km distances: first from near the INSIVUMEH volcano observatory (SW flank, first 3 rows of pictures), and from the SE (last pictures). The latter was chosen instead of initially planned Acatenango because of very bad weather and the presence of a new lava flow on that side.
Many thanks for support goes to the friendly staff from OVFGO/INSIVUMEH, in particular Edgar Barrios!
