The mouth of the Tamarindo Estuary

This is the exact spot shown in yesterday's aerial photo, except this is a ground-level view. The water in the foreground is the mouth of the Tamarindo Estuary just before it flows into the Pacific Ocean. The beach across the way is the southern tip of Playa Grande. The water in which the boat is anchored is the Pacific Ocean.

I thought it might be an interesting perspective to show from the ground the same scene that I showed from the air in my photo yesterday. This photo was taken on a somewhat hazy morning, and the blue of the water seems to blend in with the blue of the sky, creating a tranquil atmosphere that I think is quite appropriate for such a serene scene.

You bet it's an interesting perspective. It's also an excellent photograph.

The haze somehow makes it look peaceful and quiet.

this almost looks like a ghost ship left at sea. it does look peaceful and that you could walk on the beach for miles. it would be fun to have a boat and be able to pull up at these great locations along the coast in Costa Rica.
