Mazatlán, Mexico is a gem of a place to visit with pleasant surprises around every corner. While shooting photos all afternoon in its historic and enchanting downtown I knew I wanted to catch the sunset at one of it’s most charming beaches along it’s famous “malecón” called “Olas Altas” or “High Waves”. The challenge I took upon myself was to find a new angle that didn’t just involve including sand and palm trees. I was looking for one that I hadn’t seen before. Getting anxious as I saw the sun getting lower and lower, I happened upon a curved staircase leading down to an overlook. This was it! I felt like the theme of nature and man made objects could be married. The waves of the Pacific ocean and a wavy staircase would be a nice juxtaposition. After a couple of test shots I allowed the sun to get just low enough to capture the golden glow on the wavy stairs. Next time I find myself in the same location, who know what other angles I’ll find. If you haven’t been to Mazatlán, make it your next destination! You won’t regret it!
