Photo of the Day (1.12.11)

Have you ever caught the absolute perfect view of a place? Be it a city’s shape or a cloud’s roll, have you ever felt like you saw something you wish you could share with the world? Those moments are what I live for. They’re why we travel.

A lot of Latin American cities are similar to San Jose, Costa Rica–at least at night. Many of them climb up hillsides and cast a deep orange glow onto the lingering low clouds after sunset. This shot was captured by photographer, Ben Britz, this past summer.

Atop a high hill in San Jose sits a restaurant from where he got this shot. Equipped with live local music and dancing, this place made for the perfect perch for the perfect shot.
