Sunset and palm from our patio

I haven't posted a sunset in a while, so here is another sunset from the balcony/patio of our Langosta Beach condo. The warmth of the sun is still burning through the marine layer of clouds, which will add definition to the sun as it descends into the Pacific.

The hustle and bustle of the office, traffic, and the stress of work back in the USA seem a long way away, until we check our email and answer telephone.

On our travel photo site, Viva la Voyage, this week we are showing some from Merida, the largest city in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, which has retained some of its Spanish colonial charm and has a museum that showcases the Mayan civilization that preceded the Spanish conquest.

This photography for sure remains to be a moment in time worth to be framed.

A nice warm looking sunset is a welcome sight in January in New England.

Your question about my Fiedler footbridge shot is right. This bridge leads right over to the Hatch Shell.
