Costa Rica (January 2015)

At the beginning of the new year, I was fortunate enough to spend a few weeks in Costa Rica in a short study abroad class. We learned vast amounts about the environment, tourism and the history of Costa Rica. Due to the speed at which we pushed through everything, I wasn't able to spend a day working on a photo story that interested me, but here's a large edit of the photos I shot while there.

I think the coolest picture I got might have been of the night rainbow, better known as a Lunarbow or Moonbow. I've never seen one of those and had no idea such a thing existed, so that was magical to stumble upon after a night tour through a forest.

My biggest disappointment was not being able to spend more time photographing the local fishermen and the story behind the low tide that effected when the boats could go in and out. It was a picturesque area with an interesting story related to a company deepening one of the river feeds into the bay to get a new, large ship out to ocean. But I digress...

Hope you enjoy the images.
