Shadow Shot Sunday 60 - Amecameca
















Amecameca is a sleepy little Mexican town full of bicitaxis like the one shown above with its nice sharp shadow presented like a crisp mirror image. Why visit this tiny little town?? Only an hour away from Mexico City, it is the best and closest place to view the twin volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, and when there is heavy snow on the summits what could prove to be a more magnificent vista than this??


















And a close up of the summit of Smoking Popo reveals that he is sporting a few nice shadows of his own.......Check out more shadowy shots at Shadow Shot Sunday!!

You visit the most amazing places !

These shots remind me of the "before" photos of Mt Saint Helens. I wonder what the "after" shots will look like ? Somehow the snow seems to effectively belie all sense of danger lurking belows those gorgeous slopes...

I think the bike shadow is great and I had no idea that there was snow in Mexico :)

You do find the best shots! Love the bike cab! Would love to take one of those! Your shots of the volcanoes, like Owen, remind me of Mt. St. Helen before she erupted and the snow does belie the sense of danger. Gorgeous captures! Have a great weekend, Catherine!

The taxi leaves a crisp shadow, replicating the driver looking for customers. The riders are offered a nice shady seat for their trip...

A majestic alp, with snow on top and shadows below. Another nice tour of Mexico!

What a wonderful collection of images. I was very tempted to hop on my bike and pedal half way around the world to visit Amecameca until I read the two words that stopped me. One was "Popo" and the other was "Smoking".
