Amazing Pictures of La Quema Del Diablo in Guatemala

I recently posted about The Dying Tradition of La Quema del Diablo and wanted to share with you these wonderful pictures taken on December 7th 2012 in Guatemala by my dear friend Pedro Pepió. He is a wonderful photographer and I am thankful that he let me share his work on my blog. You can see more of his pictures on his Facebook page Pedro Pepió Fotografía
