Afternoon Reflections

This is a photo of Tamarindo beach in the late afternoon. This is a contrast to the photo I showed the day before yesterday for the July 1 theme day of "reflections," which was the same scene at sunset.

I think it is amazing that the ocean can at the right time of the tide tenderly cover the gently sloping beach with a smooth layer of the sea to produce a glassy reflection. This is not a lake, this is the Pacific Ocean at a world-class surfing beach.

This photo illustrates that the southern end of Tamarindo Bay is protected from the full force of the waves by a reef and island that extends from San Francisco Point, which you see in this photo.

Down the beach to the right of this photo is the main part of Tamarindo Beach, which is very popular for surfers and for surfing lessons. That is where our Diria Resort condo is located. Around the point to the left of this photo is Langosta Beach, where our other condo is located, right on the beach. One guest from Spain who stayed in my condo described it as "epic surfing."

I intended to post this photo the day after the sunset reflection shot on July 1, but changed the date of the post so I could insert the lost dog photo yesterday.

This is almost more spectacular sunset scene you showed for theme day. The reflections of the clouds are wonderful. I love this shot.
