The initial reason for this trip to Costa Rica was a visit with my daughter who was there receiving on-the-job training (a college requirement for her) with a company in San José. I was totally taken by the exquisite landscape this paradisal land has to offer. The multiplicity of flora and fauna plus the great diversity of landforms provided a plethora of photographic opportunities which were hampered only by our unfortunate but necessary time limitations. For most of my photographs, coming back at another time when, for example, the light might be more propitious simply wasn't an option. I hope some day to be able to return to this remarkably beautiful country. A second visit, however, in which I would have the requisite time to do photographic justice to Costa Rica's enchantingly alluring landscape.
