I stood in the plaza and looked up in awe at the beautiful Arequipa Cathedral towers. And although my intent was always to shoot the plaza in Arequipa, I wasn’t sure what or where. However, as I watched the bright blue sky behind the cathedral begin to tint a blue and purple colour I knew I needed to find a clean vantage point. After a couple minutes of scanning I spotted what looked like a patio restaurant well on top of the plaza. I climbed the 7 flights of stairs and was awarded by this incredible view. As I fired about 30 shots of the plaza and the towers the sun sank behind the horizon and the colours began to explode from the sky and the surrounding buildings. Among many people, the Arequipa Cathedral, and the plaza itself, is said to be the most beautiful in all of South America. personally, as someone who has seen nearly ever major plaza South America has to offer, I wouldn’t argue too much with that statement.
