A couple enjoying each others company on the great Malecón while the sun is going down and a classic USSR car is cruising by. Romantic isn't it?
That high building on the left is the 1956 FOCSA Building (123m, 35 floors). On top is restaurant La Torre. In front of it, with the two towers, is Hotel Nacional. This is one of Havana's best and is from the 30s.
More Malecón romance in the days to come.

Hello Gilbert, I like your pick with this beautiful panorama and sunset, I would have preferred an old american car in first plan rather than a russian one but I love the atmosphere, congratulations

Dramatic sky for this beautiful Cuban sunset! The car, the sea, and the skyline also give a very good effect, although I am not sure I like the architecture of the buildings! But, that's nothing to do with the photographer!
I hope you are enjoying this festive season!

Wow. What a show. And I don't mean the couple on the Malecón. That sky takes your breath away: beautifully lighted and rendered so crisply by your camera.
All the pieces here work really well together. . . It is romantic!
Thanks for the architectural highlights and links also. It sounds like a wonderful visit.
Take care, Gilbert.
