Babbling brook

This is a photo of the creek crossed by the log bridge shown yesterday. One of the things that we like about Costa Rica, and that helped to persuade us to buy a condo (and then a second condo) in Costa Rica rather than in another tropical location, is the diversity of the environment.

Tamarindo offers an ideal beach location, but it is not isolated on an island. It is part of a remarkable, diverse country. There is much more to do than beach activities, such as hiking tropical cloud forests like the one shown in this photo.

The thickness of the forest canopy in blocking the sunlight is shown by the blurred effect of the water cascading between the rocky pools in this photo. There was not enough light to have a fast enough shutter speed to capture the water without the flowing, blurred effect. I did not slow down the shutter speed on purpose to create that effect.

Several days ago I posted a photo of the stream that is crossed by the foot bridge that I showed in my photos on Feb. 1 and 2. Kate posted a comment that the stream looked larger than a babbling brook, and I agree. Today's photo shows what I would consider to be in the babbling brook category.

Tomorrow I will show you a photo of a small critter that greeted us when we crossed this creek, and then the next day I will show a photo to illustrate the biodiversity of the plant life in the area.

Babbling brooks are a favourite of mine. This looks very inviting to pass the time.
