Shadow Shot Sunday 49 - Costa Rica



















Back in the beautiful rainforests of Costa Rica this week with these leaf shadows.....












All the subtle greens of the canopy are so stunningly rich and vivid, but I also like this little, more delicate shadow pattern I found nearer the forest floor...

Lovely and lush! I especially like the last one, near the forest floor. So refreshing to see, for me, an exotic locale.

Nothing so lovely as Costa Rica's rainforest. WHich I could be surrounded by all that greenery now!

I can feel the jungle heat looking at these.

The massive green leaves seem to have a skeleton created by the shadow behind it. The forest of green is huge, the shapes artistic. Beautiful captures!

Happy w/end, dear C...

I love the first one, but then when I scrolled down I found that I loved the last one even more. These are wonderful! I was just flicking through a travel book about Costa Rica the other day & dreaming about visiting!
