Photographer's Note

Night vision over the town of Baños.

Baños is a small city in the Andean highlands of Ecuador under the smoke of volcano Tungurahua. Its name, which is Spanish for "Baths (of sacred water)," comes from the famous hydrothermal springs in the area.

The picture was taken at night, but with some fog over the town, therefore the pictures might looks “foggy”…

The purple towers are representing the Church of the Virgin of the Holy Water (Nuestra Señora del Agua Santa). The church is neo-Gothic style church. It is named after the vision of the Virgin Mary seen near the appropriately named waterfalls and is therefore a place of pilgrimage for those who come to thank the Virgin for many miracles and to ask for her blessing.
