As in London

There has not been a single day since we've gone to Coronado Cathedral that hasn't been covered by low clouds, overcast with a very light rain drops that look like cat hairs in the air, but will keep on trying.

Devi from Chennai, India

@Devi: A very impressive cathedral indeed, I wouldn't expect to find these great buildings in such as small central american country... but here they are, and many of them. Txs&Txs4watchingDevi

I recognize a London Sky anywhere ! But a very fine building, too.

Fantastic sharp picture of this beautiful Cathedral.

@Willem: ... and it's a shame that the maximum posting size is only 800px wide (0.5Mp)... original photo (24Mp) offers really impressive detail. Txs&Txs4watchingWillem

Reinald Van De Walle from Vigo, Spain

El emplazamiento está muy bueno, rodeado de aire para que se luzca completa al igual que la foto. Nice!

Gracias por ponerme en tu blogwatch. Aviso que tengo grandes vacíos de fotos. Voy por venadas :-))

29 Jan 2013 12:01pm

@Reinald Van De Walle: Cierto la ubicación es muy buena, pero igual, la iglesia le queda muy grande a este pueblo. ¡Jeje... Reinald! realmente no te he puesto todavía en mi blogwatch por eso mismo, sólo llegué a tu foto por casualidad... jeje... Txs4watching

masterpiece.....details are superb.....soft colors are splendid..frame is good ....sharpness is terrefic.

@Hossein Saharnaz: Thanks Hossein. Our Cybershot HX100V is the most versatile camera we've ever known, its little 1/2.3 sensor has good enough IQ for most purposes but it has its limits, specially for landscaping, that's why I got SLT A65 and it's proving to be a great camera, it has better definition and sharpness (APS-C sensor); it's almost the same A77 but more compact (I hate bulky show-off cameras) and much less expensive in exchange of few features I can easily prescind from.

Francisco from Miami, United States

De verdad que esas iglesias de Costa Rica son unos monumentos! que belleza!

29 Jan 2013 5:00pm

@Francisco: C.R. era una de las partes más pobres de la colonia de Mexico, no tenía oro, plata ni gente (ni siquiera indígenas (que tampoco servían)), por lo que en la época de la colonia no se justificó la construcción de importantes centros de recaudación... pero en Mexico y Perú sí, por lo que los curas hicieron una fuerte inversión en infraestructura. /// Lo impresionante es que aquí, estas iglesias, centros de estabilidad política, fueron financiadas a posteriori por los muy contados terratenientes amos del valle (los "oligarcas explotadores mesmos" jeje).

Lougris from Toulouse, France

un ciel blanc pour fond! une cathédrale bien présentée.

@Lougris: J'aurais préféré un peu plus de bleu avec nuages, Lou... mais ainsi avec le ciel blanc il fonctionne aussi. Txs&Txs4watching

I'm afraid I didn't Rick, we were looking for the orchid Expo nearby and didn't get down the car, next time will be.
