Dramatic Illumination of San Agustí­n Ruins

San Agustí­n y la luna

Today’s night photo is to follow up my entry of Dramatic Illumination of Ruins and Historic Buildings with a better example. Back in June 3rd, I mentioned that many ruins and historic buildings in La Antigua Guatemala get a light bath a key places with spot light as to emphasize and to add drama to building that might not look impressive during the day. You now can see what a big difference a tripod can make when taking photos at night.

In the photo above, you can see the San Agustí­n ruins in the foreground, the Moon in the background and Venus between the two.

Please, let me know what do you think of this night shot and for those who have been here, tell me if you remember seeing this building?

  • this is very nice, i think this looks like the gold the europeans came to the new world to get.

  • As well as enhancing the look of these building, which I agree these lights do a great job, I suspect it serves as a bit of security too. Oh and, thank you for confirming that it is Venus. I keep seeing it over here too, but I was only almost sure what it was.
