Costa Rica - Landscapes and Sunsets

While immersed the exotic diversity of its incredible wildlife one facet of Costa Rica which I didn't really get to exploit enough was its beautiful landscapes. We often had tremendous views over mountains ranges and forested hills descending towards the distant ocean, but a lack of time and inconvenient timing meant I was not able to capture these scenes in the best light. Furthermore, many of these shots were taken on the fly during a commute from one place to another, or on a boat in the Pacific Ocean. They represent views from the mountains around La Fortuna, Monteverde, the Arenal Lake and the Pacific Ocean. I would love to have stopped on occasion to capture the vivid rainbow nestled in a dusty valley, but while bouncing along a rocky road by the edge of a cliff the practicality of such an endeavour is offset by other concerns occupying one's mind!These shots were taken with the Olympus E-M5 and either the 12-40mm F/2.8 or the 40-150mm F/2.8. Costa Rica was a truly amazing place to visit and it was a genuine privilege to sample even a glimpse of its extraordinary treasures. My time spent here only reinforces my appreciation for the wealth of nature this planet generously offers us and the urgency with which we must galvanise our collective efforts to protect and preserve it.
