SUNSETS IN PUERTO VIEJO

PREVIOUS / NEXT

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 24 november 2015

The first shots you see were taken at the beginning of November in Nerja, Spain.
The closest shot to a sunset we have in Puerto Viejo is this amazing photo of birds of pray circling above the jungle.

Well, if you look at a map of Costa Rica, you may not notice it at first but a good part of the east coast of the country actually points north.
It is a bit disturbing when you are used at looking at the sea from a south side like we usually are in Mediterranean European countries.

On my first day on playa Cocles, I was looking for the sun, to realize it was rising at my right hand side which felt weird for me.
And so as the day went by I checked on the position of the sun which is very high and at night it seems to fade behind the jungle leaving a trail of beautiful pale colors.
I think this actually characterizes a lot of the photography you do in this part of the world.
Nothing (except close ups with a macro lens) really are sharp if the weather is too humid and doesn’t allow.
I have noticed that lots of my photos have this haze of fog about them, especially with the 70-200mm.

Back to the sun, there are opportunities for sunrises of course and with a closer look at the map of the area maybe even without jungle screening it.

As opposed to Spain which is first on a much higher latitude which means that in winter time the sun will not be as high in the sky, allowing sunrises and sunsets in the distance with a shore facing south and very little nature unfortunately to block the view, sunsets are more extravagant.

Next month we will be in Florida facing south, the gulf of Mexico and I do look forward to great sunsets there !
