Palm tree shadows on Tamarindo beach

The first-of-the-month world-wide Daily Photo theme for May 1 is "shadows."  No shadows say "Tamarindo" as much as these shadows of palm trees on Tamarindo beach, looking across the bay to Cabo Velas.  These shadows also express that "You're not in Kansas, anymore."

The palm trees casting these shadows are on the grounds of the Tamarindo Diria Resort in the heart of Tamarindo beach.  The trees shade the beach only in the morning sun.  In mid-day and the afternoon, the palm trees shade tourists staying at the Diria hotel or condos who like to relax in lounge chairs in a grassy area under trees, overlooking the beach.

What a place to see shadows. A tropical paradise. It must be nice to have to deal with so much beauty.

It's a perfect choice for this lovely tropical setting. Wish I were there!

How perfect is this. Palm shadows to complete the picture. Just lovely.

Thanks for comment on Beau. Yes I remember when Abe posted his scary cat ones before. Too funny!

As an 'addicted' to the tropics I just love palm trees! Even their shadows are fantastic. Great capture!

Looks so relaxing! I'll put my chair right in the middle of one of the palm shadows.

Great photo! I love the palm shadows as you can tell from my photo on Phoenix Daily Photo. The ocean is an added benefit!

A very relaxing shadowy, shady image.

Nice picture. Even though I'm glad that it's getting colder here, I would make good use of a beach getaway (with no worries at all).

Thanks for stopping by!

Not Kansas, but it can be in the Philippines! ;)

Beautiful scene for theme day!
