Views of San Juan de los Lagos,

2016 San Juan Lagos-7990

I climbed up to the road that crosses the top of this hill. As you can see the clouds were building into something, the challenge was to find a foreground. Copyright Vanderhoof Photography 2016

I had seen this view earlier Friday, when Joe was taking me back from his 2nd house. So Saturday as the clouds build up I was ready to climb up for those shots I posted on Sunday morning, “20 Minutes, 3 shots, Rembrandt skies, to Monet skies!”

Here is what Joe had to show me of his 2nd house.

The inside courtyard, the building at the back is the house. However the surprise is in seeing this after driving up a very rural low income area. Copyright Vanderhoof Photography 2016

To the West, the clouds coming in, a delight for me… open hill sides within walking distance! Copyright Vanderhoof Photography 2016

Warning, did not write down compass points, may be off a bit, but the clouds have been moving West to East here for days.


The quick test shots of the city view, as we crossed back to the main part of the city. Gives you  an idea of the size of this city.

And here is a “guard dog”, Duffy is old, but still works his territory… Joe takes him from house to house, a dear friend.

Duffy, kind of puts up with me, specially since I put jackets on the ground. Has a hard time walking, stiff hind hips, likes soft stuff to lay on of course. Copyright Vanderhoof Photography 2016

Joe has been working on this property for 10 years, several fruit trees had fruit on them, including a “sweet lime”. Yellow in color, small and looking like a lemon, the taste, tangerine, orange and lime at least to me… Sweet to eat like an orange.

Just the roof top, gives a hint of what is inside.

A small craving in the 1st layer of Joe’s courtyard wall. He wanted me to shoot it up close like this. However no history was told or asked about. Just an amusing image to share. I may find out more about on another visit. Copyright Vanderhoof Photography 2016
