Panama Canal at Night

Recently we asked our Facebook fans what cities you'd like to see. Gary Robinette suggested Panama City.

Here, a long exposure lights up Casco Viejo, the historic district of Panama City, and the shores of the Panama Canal. The monumental canal was created by American ingenuity—U.S. engineers commanded nearly 75,000 workers around the world in the ten years of construction. The canal cuts through Panama, connecting the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea.
