Corny Constable Sunset

Sunset over Las Monjas, San Miguel de Allende


After a somewhat unusual (as usual) summer so far, the weather in the Bajío here in Mexico has returned to the typical brilliant blue skies with hot afternoons and cool evening breezes, and the usual dramatic sunset skies that Constable would have delighted in. Photographed from our rooftop terrace, the Church of the Immaculate Conception, known locally as Las Monjas (meaning “The Nuns”), founded in 1754 and still housing an active cloister of nuns, stands out on the nearby skyline. The dome is copied from that of the Church of Les Invalides in Paris.
