See this article about an Italian Landscape Photographer here with 10 of his photos. Some of his landscapes I haven’t seen yet. And my equipment is not as good. But I will end up having most of these photos in time except for the time lapse at Poas. Not my thing. Also note that beneath that first beach photo is a web address to his website with a 360 degree image of that same beach which is really cool!
My March trip was partly to get this photo, but a closed trail stopped me. I will go back and make my own photo one of these days! Rio Celeste Waterfall Tenorio National Park, Costa Rica
And for some of my “amateur” landscapes, see my Vistasgallery or my Waterfalls gallery.
LOCAL REPORT: The rain is bringing in some new bugs and while typing I just watched one of my geckos eat one. They are little with long wings, chase the light, and pester me! Life in the jungle! 🙂
Charlie Doggett crossing Rio Celeste I sure have a lot of “Jungle Fun” for an old man! Its why I’m here! Tenorio Volcano National Park, Costa Rica
Tenorio Volcano National Park, Costa Rica They are known for Tapirs (the image) but we saw none. We did see 5 Peccaries (like wild hogs), probably a family. And photos below of 3 other animals.
Merging of the Waters 2 streams merge & their minerals mix & turn the water blue. Fun! 30 meters upstream from the bridge photo above. Tenorio Volcano National Park, Costa Rica
Trailhead to Waterfall I Missed Tenorio Volcano National Park, Costa Rica Strong winds had knocked some trees over trail. Closed all 3 days there. It was interesting to learn that Bomberos (Firemen) would clean it up. And yes, some people went around the yellow tape anyway. Not me. Sendero Cerrado – Trail Closed

Yes, Much of Trail was this Muddy! Tenorio Volcano National Park, Costa Rica I always take two pairs of hiking shoes & one is still drying from cleanup! ¡PURA VIDA!
You may be asking how it could be so wet when you are still in the “Dry Season.” Well, in a cloud forest like this it is always humid, misty, and sometimes raining, year-around. Maybe more so during the rainy season. Same goes for the coastal rainforests, while we in the Central Valley have two very distinct seasons. That is why the majority of the population lives in the Central Valley.
