Atop one off the cliffs in Lima, in the district of Miraflores, the skyline of the city close to the shore can be appreciated. I find it more interesting at night than in broad daylight, but that is only my personal appreciation. Because Lima has not really used the sea as many other cities in the world have, there is not much arquitecture to be seen close to the waters of the Pacific Ocean.
In the middle of the picture is the "Costa Verde" restaurant. Some 15 - 18 years ago it was one of the best-known restaurants in the city, but today it seems to have been superseeded by others. The white bright light towards the top right is a cross made of fallen towers of electricity transmission in the times of terrorism in Peru, to remember those hard days in the country.
Also some clouds are covering parts of the city, as can be here seen on the sky, in this case, to the south.
I used no tripod to take the picuture, but just rested the camera on a small fence made of brick.
