Shadow Shot Sunday 83 - Christmas Canoes in Costa Rica....
















This time last year I was travelling and spending Christmas in Costa Rica with my sister. We were staying in the heart of the rainforest way down south over the festive season, and decided to escape to the beach for a few hours on Christmas Day in the Piedras Blancas National Park. A group of canoeists moored close to us for a while taking a break, and I was able to get this calm, tranquil shot. Happy Christmas everyone in the blogosphere, and all the very best for New Year 2011. Small Fish is on a magical odyssey all around the North of Mexico, starting in the wild west frontier town of Durango in the desert - and will be posting again at the end of 2010. For other shadow shots this week, don't forget to check out Shadow Shot Sunday by clicking here. Enjoy!!

Neat shadow of the canoe. Enjoy your odyssey and take tons of photos. Merry Christmas to you too! Or I should say Feliz Navidad!

I like the blend of shadows - the well defined shadow of the canoe on the lawn and the natural foliage shadows on the water. A wonderful combination of sun and shade...
