There was a time where I felt that taking sunset and sunrise pictures was rather cliché. But I rekindled my passion for taking sunset and sunrise pictures by embracing it as a challenge to get a quality image, one worthy of sharing with others and one that compliments my portfolio instead of defines it.
Despite the animal and volcano sightings not living up to their billing, the waterfalls and streams in Costa Rica definitely did not disappoint.
After seeing no concrete evidence of volcanoes, I began to wonder if there actually ever were volcanoes in Costa Rica or if I had just unearthed Lava Gate—a money grabbing tourism conspiracy of epic proportions.
During a recent trip to Costa Rica, my wife and I were looking forward to seeing lots of exotic animals in the wild. Things didn’t go entirely as hoped or as expected. I will say wildlife photography is not my specialty, so perhaps it’s my naivety that makes me think I would just walk into all these animals in the wild waiting to be photographed.
