Sunset Sunday – A Tour Bus Stop in Santiago Tuxtla, Veracruz

“Craig how much time do you need?” asked Jesus.

“Two minutes, maybe three.” I responded.  And even though we were late for our evening reception in Catemaco, he could make that work.

At first, I hoped to capture the sunset on the lake in Catemaco, but the sun would not wait for us like the other guests attending the ATMEX  (the Adventure Travel Mexico Conference ) reception. And with the following nights in the city of Veracruz, a port city on the Gulf of Mexico with an eastern view,  hopping off the bus seemed to be my best opportunity to get a sunset image in the state of Veracruz.

With the sky starting to show its brilliant orange glow and the sun sneaking behind a distant mountain we needed to stop soon. The bus driver determined the best place to view a sunset (and the safest place to stop along the road) was just after the passage to Santiago Tuxtla.

He pulled over and I quickly grabbed my camera and exited the bus. A few others exited behind me too to capture it for themselves. The sunset often draws a crowd.

I took a few images and climbed back on board to learn many people were curious why we stopped. Well for them and you, here is why. Happy Sunset Sunday.
