We have just returned from our trip to Costa Rica. It was a wonderful twelve days exploring the natural wonders of this rich oasis of tropical plants, flowers, animals and especially birds.
The trip was run by Road Scholar which organizes trips, mostly for more mature, adventurous, travelers, throughout the world. It was a small group of only 14 people, led by a remarkably knowledgeable guide with long experience of the amazingly diverse natural beauty of his country.
Costa Rica is a small Central American country, only about the size of West Virginia, but it possesses a disproportionately wide range of habitats from tropical rain forest to Volcanic highlands. Each day brought new exciting sights and of course I came away with a massive number of images, nearly 3000. I arrived home with just a couple of days to prepare this week's blog article and, although I intend to publish the usual travelogues, I have found myself wanting to get away from writing and back to the images.

There are so many neat pictures begging to be processed that I couldn't pull myself away to write a detailed description of the trip. So here you have a rather random collection of just some of images from our lovely journey. Just looking at them warms the cold, dark and barren view from my window.

Browse my Costa Rica Gallery for more images as I work my way through the collection. It will be a long time before I get through them all, but it is fun to keep coming back to relive the trip. I am beginning to settle back into the cold demands of my home schedule. I have a Lightroom Class coming up in March and a Basic Digital Photograph course in May. And then of course it will be time for a lovely hip replacement in June. Retirement is so relaxing. Incidentally there are still a couple of slots open for my Lightroom Class.
It will be a small, relaxed group and should be a lot of fun. Get in touch with me for more information.

Now, in no special order, here are some of the pictures I have processed so far from warm Costa Rica.
