    Reported by:

    A sunrise shot from the knees of Iztaccíhuatl (known as the "white woman" or the "sleeping woman"), towards his everlasting companion, Popocatéptl. The pair of volcanos correspond to the neovolcanic axis that goes through the center of Mexico, and inspired a mystic love myth for the Aztecs.

    This is so beautiful Isaac — what a fantastic place to watch the sunrise. Thanks for your detailed caption that further explains the scene that you photographed. I love that you are not just sharing information about the mountains, but the poetic story about how it "inspired a mystic love myth for the Aztecs." I love it. Well done.
