Playa Langosta

Horizontes del Mar Condo 1

We're down on the coast in Tamarindo, taking it very easy. The condo we're renting is owned by our colleague Dave Selden of Tamarindo Daily Photo. You can rent it, too! Fabulous location, a bit out from the center of town, quiet and right on the beach. The top photo is the view from the patio at sunset.

The neighborhood where the condo is located is known as Playa Langosta, or Lobster Beach, As you can see, it's very uncrowded.

I decided to do a series of black and white shots of the rocky beach. It's all about light and form, shape and texture. B&W seemed like a good medium to bring that out.

Sorry I didn't get a post up at midnight as usual. Uncharacteristically, I'm so laid back here that I fell asleep on the sofa with my laptop across my legs, work unfinished. Not so bad.

La vie est belle! You deserve to nap on the sofa. Have fun.

These photos are lovely in BW.

Looks and sounds wonderful! I'm assuming you are applying sunscreen every 20 minutes in order to not turn into a langosta.

Seeing these in black and white is a rare treat, even for someone like me, who is not as much of a fan of monochrome as many others are. And, yes, relaxing and naps are good. It is practice for retirement.

Top view from your balcony Bob, and as you say the B&W really does bring out the textures in these beach scenes.
