Nightscapes – Lima, Peru

Here are six early evening nightscapes of the Peruvian capital shot from the top floor of the Hotel Continental, situated in the center of Lima’s historical center.

As many of you know, the late afternoon and early evening blue hour is ideal for shooting if conditions are right. Here the blue tended towards gray, but I still liked the resulting color variety and saturation.

By the way, it does pay off to explore your hotel a bit. I asked at reception if there was any way to access the roof, even supervised, and was told no.

“How about the top floor?”

“No, sorry, that is closed when there are no events taking place.”

Closed yes, but not locked. I had the entire 11th floor meeting/banquet space to myself. And the windows even opened. 🙂
