The city of Antigua in Guatemala offers the best preserved examples of Spanish Colonial architecture in Central America. This surprises me since it is surrounded by 3 dormant or active volcanoes and the city was destroyed in the late 1700s, prompting the country to relocate the capitol from there to what we now know as Guatemala City.
This is a single exposure, radically tweaked in Photomatix and Photoshop to highlight the textures in the walls of the building and add a lot of drama to the sky. It has proven very popular since I took it in 2007 and holds the record for the largest print (42” x 28” or thereabouts) I have seen of any of my images.
