The Colors of Puerto Vallarta

As in most of Mexico, colors are wild things here. The building fronts splashed with pink and turquoise and lemon yellow. Nature cooperates with fuschia bougainvillia and blood-red hybiscus. The eye dances from one bright hue to another, finding no quiet place to rest.

But, also beautiful is the lack of color. This shot was taken on the beach right at sunset on as a cloud cover rolled in. All silvers and blue-grays, a splash of white at the horizon.
