Many residents of San Miguel de Allende have spectacular views of el centro, with its colorful walls and stunning churches. They are the views replicated in glossy postcards and artists’ renderings sold on the square.
The view from our home looks away from the city and out onto an expanse of mountains, which are the backdrop against the golf course. The color and contour of the hills change frequently and subtlety as the light constantly shifts. It is a scene I take in every day, but struggle to capture through my lens.
But recently, a bank of voluptuous clouds provided an additional dimension, contrasting their rounded softness with the rounded hardness of the ground below. A dramatic contrast indeed.
