Its harvest time in Central America.
From Mexico to Panama, coffee farmers are hard at work harvesting their crops. Some have had great seasons some are still recovering from leaf rust blighting their trees and others have had too much heat. In Guatemala just south of Mexico farmers are in full swing picking their coffee. Guatemala is home to many volcanoes and large rainforests. Just west of the capital Antigua contains preserved Spanish Colonial buildings. Lake Atitlan formed in a massive volcanic crater is surrounded by coffee fields and villages. Last year many of these coffee farms were inundated with volcanic ash due to huge eruptions in the area. However as you can see from the photos here much of the area is still displaying its natural beauty.
