My wife and I were in the city of Guanajuato, Mexico a couple of weeks ago for a long weekend. Our time there also happened to fall during the Cervantino, an international arts and music festival. I’ll be writing more about that later, but for this post I just wanted to share a few photos from around Guanjauato, taken around sunset.
On a cool and windy late afternoon, I climbed the up to the Monument to Pipila to take a photo of the city. The sun was setting and partially hidden by clouds and ended up illuminating up the houses and hills in the background in a very pleasing way:

On the way back down the hill, I snapped a side view of the Basilica:
I also took some random photos one night while walking around. Here’s a few that turned out reasonably well:
I’ll be posting a lot more Guanajuato photos in the weeks to come. It’s one of the most beautiful and photogenic places I’ve traveled in Mexico, and I can’t wait to share them with you.
