Sunset in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Yesterday was such a fun filled day with the Primavera parade and then walking around town to see all the altars and fountains decorated for the Virgen of Sorrows.  (I did not go to see the altars, hence no photos).

But, as I sat watching television in the living room, all of a sudden the atmosphere in the room took on a glow.  Seriously.  Turning to look to the West, this is what I saw.  I scurried downstairs to get my camera and then back up three flights of stairs to the roof terrace to share the beauty of this view.

A spectacular sunset.  Different then most because of the low hanging clouds or whatever it was that caused the color to become so intense.  With the mountains in the distance, it was quite remarkable.










I have not enhanced the color.  This is really what it looked like.  Looking through the trees, it looked, to me, like the sky was on fire~.  Quite an exquisite sight.

Cartinero 46, I'm sure the sunsets in Zihuatanejo are exquisite as well. I so enjoy being at the beach and watching how long the sunsets and colored skies last.

from you after all these years.

Mexico serves up some mighty fine sunsets ;-) Beautiful!

Babs said...

Indeed, Calypso. I know you have many magnificent ones as well down there on the beach!

How beautiful is that!

Indeed, it was Scott. In retrospect, I would take a photo and think, "Well that's it!" and then another transformation would occur. Obviously it went on for quite a while.

I was so grateful to see such natural beauty.........
