A photo blog delving into my travel photography archives at www.timbirdphotography.com

A few years ago I had an obsession with volcanoes. Or rather, my continuing obsession with volcanoes manifested itself in the form of several visits to Central America, to Guatemala, Costa Rica and Honduras, for example. One of those visits was to Nicaragua where I did managed to gaze, Frodo-like, into some ominously smoking volcanic craters. More of those later, but here is a quick New Year re-visit to the lakeside colonial gems of Leon and Granada, and a glimpse of one smoking vent.

Happy New Year, Six Picks visitor!
