Photo of the Month: Sunset in the Andes (Cuenca, Ecuador)

Posted in: Cuenca Ecuador, Ecuador Travel, Traveling Kids

This series (photo of the month) is a new series I will be doing, hope you like it!

This is a picture that I took a few weeks ago here in Cuenca, I think this is the nicest sunset I have seen! The rays coming up from behind the mountain really give it a nice feel. It makes me feel like I could just fly away into a world of beauty and fantasy!


Sunset in the Andes, near Cuenca Ecuador

Interested to photograph some of these areas on your trip? Here’s how to choose Best Camera for Travel

In this picture, if you look close enough, you can see houses on the mountain and trees too. The dark blue clouds are really nice as well! Sunsets don’t last long here because we are on the equator. When I see a nice one, I have to take a picture right away, or I’ll miss it.

I took this picture with my new Canon camera. As you can see, it worked very, very well.

    I like your photo of the sunset. One of the first things I noticed when I found your site were your wonderful photos. Please tell us about your camera. Some tips on taking great photos would also be nice.
    Keep up the great work.

    You continue to impress me! Your pictures are excellent and your stories are making me excited about visiting Ecuador. Keep up the good work. One day you may become a professional photo/journalist.

    Wow, Drew! One word that comes to mind is: Glorious! What a great shot! Keep going, shutterbug!

    Canon’s are great, aren’t they? What Canon did you get & what features do you really like on it? I really love a great zoom and macro features- a fish eye lens would be the ultimate for lots of fun- I can only imagine what hilarious pictures you’d take with the help of a fish eye!
