The Yucatan peninisula is home to some of the worlds greatest pyramids. Chichen Itza is the most famous but this one at Uxmal near Merida is, in my humble opinion, just as gob smacking and without the tourists. There are many other ruins but the Gran Pyramid is the show stopper. Despite it being the middle of the day I was able, with the aid of my trusty polariser, to capture some good light and the white fluffy clouds.
