Single-image Sunday: Peaceful in Baja   8 comments

I find Baja to be a peaceful place, by and large.  It’s not like some other areas of Mexico, which can be bustling (or even dangerous in a few cases).  To use the correct term, it’s ‘tranquilo’, a reason Mexicans give for visiting and even moving here.  The non-resort areas of Yucatan are similarly peaceful.  I wanted this shot to express that peace and I think it did.

I walked out here from Ensenada looking for a good shot of the bay and possibly a good overview shot of the town with a big cruise ship sitting in harbor.  That shot wasn’t possible, as the best vantage point was either from an off-limits naval yard or the top of a steep hill I didn’t have time to climb.

I watched the sunset develop as I walked.  I passed a wedding where the photog. was happily shooting his couple with great light.  After a rather plain sunset, I waited until near dark hoping for that glow you sometimes get.  Mostly I wanted the kind of low light that makes long exposures like this easy to shoot without an extra filter.  The vibrant sky was a nice bonus.
