A landscape view of the area surrounding the Bahá'i Temple taken from the top of Sonsonate Hill. The green color everywhere, the cool breeze and the fresh air was a terrific experience. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.
The picture above is a composition of several independents shots stitched together to create a landscape photograph of the area surrounding the temple. The building is perched on the Cerro Sonsonate (the singing hill) at an elevation of 730 feet and is located 7 miles north of Panama City on the Transisthmian Highway in an area known as Ojo de Agua. The view from the hill is absolutely awesome as you can appreciate in this picture.
Below are the shots that I used to create this wide-angle landscape view of the area around the temple. On top of the hill, you can barely hear the noise of the traffic below on the Transisthmian Highway. The area is very quiet and only the harmonious chirping of the birds can be heard. The ruffle of the leaves also creates a relaxing atmosphere.

It was a crystal clear day with a wonderful view of the lush vegetation adjacent to the Bahá'i Temple. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.
The dry season is just starting in Panama, so the trees and the grass are still green. Soon it will turn brown as the sun intensifies its action. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.
An attraction of the temple are slender tall royal palm trees and well-trimmed lawns and gardens around the structure. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

If you are enjoying the visit to the aesthetic temple on top of Sonsonate Hill, I encourage you to return tomorrow for more enticing pictures of this picturesque place perched on top of a hill. Good Day.
