It may have solved the case of writer/photo block I was having and I got to do a number of fun things that I can't wait to share with you. However, this means I'm probably going to be talking to the point of exhaustion about my trip so brace yourself. I've been on a diet of strong Costa Rican coffee (and maybe a cervesa or two) so now I have nothing but energy.
I thought I'd share some of my favorite panoramic photos from the trip. Surprisingly I didn't take nearly as many digital pictures as I thought I had (my Holga photos still need to be developed, so we'll see if any of those turn out). I think it may be because they really know how to put the 'rain' in the term rain forests. It kept me from bringing my camera out from my backpack, plus it's super hard to take good photographs (for me at least) in the rain. But don't even trip, I have more than enough to reminisce and share. Just not the normal amount I end up bringing home from vacation.
Here's a little taste of what I'm sure my next several posts are going to be like.
The view from our room on the Pacific Side of Costa Rica in Guanacaste.
Our hotel in Tortuguero Forest. There's only screens on the windows, which while being awesome to hear the rain forest, may not filter the voices of someone who doesn't know how to whisper (aka - me).
The view from our cruise on the Tarcoles River searching for the Giant Crocodiles.
This photo is taken on one of the Arenal hanging bridges, high above the rain forest. Just praying that when someone takes a step on the bridge they won't shake it too much and cause me to drop my camera into the abyss.
