There’s nothing like a sunset

Cafe Sky roof-top, originally uploaded by rudygiron.

Sunsets in Antigua are something special and even more so when you watch them from Cafe Sky roof-top bar. You sit at the roof-top bar with drinks and friends to watch the sun set against a sky line, broken by volcanoes and mountains; if you are lucky you will be greeted by Fire volcano. Sunset’s warm light falls on Antigua’s color palette to give you such rich and wonderful spectrum that makes you wonder if these are the same walls and house from this morning. To your left you can see Water volcano raise just outside Antigua. There are the things that make Antigua such a magical place.

Cheers to all of you! and my warmest wishes to all the Daily Photo Cities.

The church you see just a little south is La Iglesia de San Francisco el Grande. There is buried the only Catholic Saint for Central America: El Santo Hermano Pedro de Betancourt. He was born in Tenerife, Canary Islands in 1626. The World just keeps on getting smaller. I wander if Pamela knows about El Hermano Pedro.

  • What a beautiful photo and wonderful sentiments to go along with it. Congratulations on the new camera. Looking forward to lots more pictures of Antigua.

  • Carol, I haven’t got the camera yet. Maybe tomorrow it will be on my hands.

  • wonderful post! I’m clinking a glass in response.

  • Pamela

    Hola Rudy, Yes, I certainly have heard of El Hermano Pedro. His name was in the news a lot here when he was beautified in 2002, but even before that people would often refer to his cave that is on the south side of Tenerife. I’ve got an image for today, that I will post shortly, that has loose links with him.

  • Wow, what a great view to enjoy while having a drink.

  • nice photo but i think i wouldn’t want to be greated by the fire of a volcano.

  • Sompopo

    That is a very cool picture. Wish I was there.

    I can almost taste the Gallo now…Rudy, does a bald brit named KungFu Mike still work at Sky?

  • Lu!

    mmm… como que solo yo voy a escribir en español va? bueno no importa… excelente foto tu, me encanta como se ven los colores, hey y pues las gallo le dan el toque chapín!


  • Edwin, I too opened up a bottle of beer.

    Jazzy, the view is spectacular and it is best in December and January one the light is awesome, the winds keep the clouds away and Fire volcanoe is very active.

    Pamela, I read your follow-up post. Great research. Just remember that Americans are all the people who live on the America continent, and not just U.S. Citizens.

    Patsy, I am sure you would love to be greeted by Fire volcano since it is far enough to be safe and yet be able to watch his pyromaniac games.

    Sompopo, I am glad you are back, I thought I had scared you away.

    Charles, you are feeling nostalgic, please don’t, just take airplane and come to revisit.

    Lu! me da gusto que regreses, ya me tenías preocupado.

  • Rudy, another lovely photo! And congratulations on your 100th post!!!

  • I’m going to join in…congrats on your 100th post! keep shooting 🙂
