Shadowed peaks

Two volcanoes, seen from near the Laguna Verde, in the extreme south west of the Bolivian altiplano, close to the Chilean and Argentine borders (my altitude at this point 4,328m).


I was hoping that the smaller cloud would also throw a shadow precisely on the summit of its volcano, but after watching for a while, it became clear that it was drifting away; sad for me, but good news for the other occupants of my Land Cruiser, who were less enthused by hanging around waiting for shadows to move than I was.....
