Puerto Nuevo

Alright, I lied. One more photo before I leave for Thailand. I couldn’t stand the idea of that ridiculous-looking deer being the front page of Optic Distraction for the next month. So I chose something far less ridiculous… a 50-foot tall STATUE OF JESUS!

Unbelievable. This is just outside Puerto Nuevo, Baja Norte. This shot was actually taken from the highway as we sped as rapidly as possible to get south of Ensenada. I wasn’t really prepared for this thing, but how does one prepare for something like this? On the bright side, the lighting made for one dramatic photograph of this enormous… thing.

In case you were worried, a Bishop from Tijuana did actually bless our beautiful 50-foot tall Jesus.

See you all in six weeks!

great colors
the darkness of the sky really makes the statue stand out
(but i’m sure you already know that)

How appropriate. A bishop from TJ blessing a 50-foot Jesus.

This is where my dad lives and his house is just below where the photo cuts off. Correction though this is not Puerto Nuevo, although it is close, this is actually El Morro. My sister happened to ”Stumbleupon” this photo and sent it to me! Its so cool to see it. Thank you!
