Cityscapes – Quito, Ecuador | Stock Image Gallery

Cityscape 2, Quito, Ecuador. May 2013

Flanked by snow-capped volcanic peaks and sprawled across the Guayllabamba River valley in the country’s northern highlands, few of the world’s capitals can claim as beautiful a setting as Quito, the Ecuadorian capital.

Its historical center, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, is described as one of the largest and best-preserved historical city centers in the Americas. There is no shortage of well-preserved and maintained colonial buildings, churches, monasteries and squares.

Situated at 2,800m (9,350 ft) above sea level, it’s also the second highest capital in the world, giving it a much cooler climate than another superlative, that of the capital city closest to the equator, would imply. With a population of 2.6 million, it is the second largest city in the country after the main port city of Guayaquil.

    Lovely images, Bob. They really convey the sense of a busy Latin American city. I especially like the BW shot – great capture of the clouds/fog among the buildings.

    Ooh, I love the black and white one with the moody clouds. Nice job!
