Taxco Sunrise

I was in Taxco, Mexico in September for two days.  I wanted to get a nice photo of the skyline at sunrise or sunset.  My hope was to feature the church of Santa Prisca, which is one of the best examples of Mexican Churrigueresque style.  I booked a hotel with a good view.  When arrived, I found that the church dome was covered in scaffolding due to earthquake damage and wasn’t being lit at night.

I figured I could still get a decent photo, so I got up early the next morning and waited as the sun rose.  Sure enough, we had some great light.  I like this particular view of Taxco, with the Santuario Santa Veracruz on the left and the Parroquia de Santa Prisca on the right.  If you click the image to enlarge it, you can see the scaffolding on the church as they repair and paint it.
