Shadow Shot Sunday 1 : San Miguel


This is my contribution (my first) to Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday! This photo was taken in one of the most picturesque and photogenic colonial towns in the whole of Mexico, namely San Miguel de Allende. Cobbled streets and buildings in rich russets, ochres and dusky pinks coupled with the strength and clarity of the Mexican light make it an artist's and photographer's paradise. This was taken in the late afternoon when the slanting rays made the shadows at their most intense. For other shadow shots please visit hey harriet and for more on the charming San Miguel click here
