Lush Tropics In Black And White

Playa Braslito 1

The tropics are full of color. Things made by people exaggerate the effect. However, some images look better stripped to their essentials of shape and tone. I found this to be true even here.

Above, jet skis ready to go on Playa Brasilita, up the coast. Below, some of the forest of wind turbines on the gusty west coast of Lake Nicaragua; little sea kayaks for rent on Playa Tamarindo; massage on the beach; and sunset, surfers and sailboats.

Sorry I'm not leaving any comments this week. Our days and evenings are packed with slow-moving action and, after editing pix and writing posts, there isn't much spare time. I must have some distant link to sharks: if I stopped moving I would perish. ¿Un poco loco, no?

By the way, there are a lot more pix from Costa Rica and Nicaragua in a set on Flickr here, with more to come.
