Volcano, Caldera, Valleys...

Taken from the plane, I realize the colors and quality lacked a lot but its one of those shots that I'll probably never get again. In the front we have Fuya Fuya and Mojanda lake an inactive caldera, the snow covered "mountain" is a stratovolcano called Cayambe which is almost always covered by clouds, the white flat "buildings" in the valley under Cayambe is where a large quantity of flowers are grown which are then exported all over the world. I have never seen it so clear before!

A shame that the clouds means the mountains do not contrast well against the sky, as that would have then made this scene really work well. I like the different colours through the green land, maybe this colour could have been pushed a little further to make it more of a feature fo the photo.
