the sky is my endless fascination

As in Maui in 2015, I don’t think I missed a sunset in Puerto Vallarta.  The sky is my endless fascination.

Most of the sunset pictures I took in Puerto Vallarta were from the rooftop pool. I don’t really have a bucket list, but I’ve always wanted to stay somewhere with a private pool.

Rooftop pool

…a lot of time was spent in this pool staring out at the sea (but my favourite time in the pool was in the evening look at the lights of Puerto Vallarta and the moon)…

I love watching the phases of the moon and I think it’s so awesome that I’m able to get so close with my new camera (Nikon p510)  Earlier in the week, I was able to get some good shots of the moon from my balcony at about 11:30.  I’m off today so I stayed up later to try to get a shot last night (I could’ve easily went down to the street and around the corner to get a picture earlier, but what fun would that be!).  Anyway, at about 12:30 I still didn’t have a clear view so I leaned precariously over the railing and snapped a few pictures.  While I was out there I thought I might as well trying taking some pictures of my flowers, so here are a few from that experiment.
