How this Virtual Tour was mad
The photographs outside Buena Vista Sinaloa I.A.P. I made them in the “Blue hour”. In reality it is not an hour, but only lasts a few minutes, when the sun crosses the horizon in the afternoon, generating light with very beautiful blue and magenta tones. It is at this momentwhen the artificial lights of the buildings and flying buttresses stand out a lot and the sky is truly impressive in its color.
