Forza Horizon 5 Hidden By Shadows is one of the 7 El Camino Accolades requiring you to photograph specific statues. To unlock it, you have to discover and photograph the Statue near El Arco De Cabo San Lucas.
FH5 Hidden By Shadows Accolade is a bit trickier to get especially if you’re trying to get 3 Stars at the end of the corresponding Story.
Regardless, throughout the guide below, I’ll tell you where to find the El Arco De Cabo San Lucas Statue and how to get the Hidden By Shadows El Camino Accolade.
Forza Horizon 5 Hidden By Shadows Photograph Location
The Forza Horizon 5 El Arco De Cabo San Lucas Statue is found on the western coast of Mexico, as you can see on the map above.
This landmark is marked on your map once you discover it; however, to photograph this statue, you’ll have to play (or replay) The Statue At Sunset Story or the 3rd story in El Camino Chapter.
If you don’t know how to replay the FH5 Stories, feel free to check this guide.
Forza Horizon 5 - How To Discover And Photograph The Statue Near El Arco De Cabo San Lucas
Because of the Statue’s position and because The Statue At Sunset Story 3 Stars are quite tricky to get, the Hidden By Shadows Accolade is best approached after you get the 3 Gold Stars in the associated El Camino Story.
Simply put, if you wish to get both the Hidden By Shadows Accolade and the 3 Statue At Sunset Stars, you’ll notice that it’s a bit hard since you’ll waste precious seconds.
As such, first focus on getting the 3 Stars at the end of the story by beating the timer, then replay The Statue At Sunset Story and photograph the Statue, because for the Hidden By Shadows Accolade the timer can be ignored.
After the story stars, head to the destination point on your map, and you’ll see a large stone arch.
It is found on the beach and quite hard to miss.
Head through the said arch, then on the left side near the stone wall you’ll see the Statue in my screenshot.
After you find the FH5 El Arco De Cabo San Lucas Statue, get close to it, then activate your camera by pressing Up on your DPad.
Ensure that both your car and the statue appear in the photo; then, press A to take a photograph, unlock the FH5 Hidden By Shoadows Accolade, and finish The Statue at Sunset Story.
