Panama City at Sunrise – My Shot of the Day – January 28, 2013

panama city

This morning, my last in Panama City, Maria Elena and I hiked (well, ok…it is an easy 15 minute walk) up Cerro Ancon for a sunrise view of the city. Not a bad sight. Amazing to me is that, at night, this huge city is not lit up like you might think. So many of those offices and apartments are empty. I imagined some amazing night shots of Panama City but no.

Anyway, here in sunrise on Panama City, Panama the morning of January 28, 2013.

I’ll be in the airplane to cold Colorado in just a few hours.

    beautiful capture even though it is a city. So glad you've had such a great time, but we miss seeing your smiling face. Safe travels today my friend, and Len says the 'rubber side down'.

      Thank you CheyAnne! I'm back home and settling in…and missing the warm!

    You captured the peace of early morning in Panama City and let the jungle that frames the city frame your shot — very nice!

      Thank you very much. What a stunning view. Now I'm back home in the cold and thinking how soon I can get back down there!

    Sorry we missed you guys here in Panama! We're in PC right now and will be exploring the country until May as part of our ongoing Trans-Americas Journey! Great shot.

      Yes! Sorry we missed Karen! I hope to be back down there soon.

    fantastic photo. I felt the same away about the city not being lit up. It's because the majority of those units are just money laundering from rich south Americans…

      Jeremy, thank you for the kudos. I'm very curious about your comment because I was wondering about all those empety places. Do you know more? Please…do share what you know.
