Jacaranda Tree

Taken at the Shrine of the Báb just before 7 pm.  The sun had gone down behind Mt. Carmel, but a pink glow was still moving across the clouds, and light reflected off of the gold roof tiles and gilded wrought iron railings.   This view is of the Shrine seen through the branches of a jacaranda tree entwined with bougainvillea.
