Sunset over tidepools

I showed a rather unattractive photo yesterday, so I thought I should show something easier on the eyes today. Here is a photo of the early stages of sunset during very low tide at San Francisco Point, which divides Tamarindo Bay from Playa Langosta.

During low tide, there are lots of tidepools to explore, trapped by the volcanic outcropping that forms the bottom of the beach at the point. These rocks shelter the bay from the waves.

During high tide, the area where I was standing when I took this photo is completely under water, with waves crashing over these rocks. Obviously there is no swimming or surfing right at this spot. Excellent areas for swimming and surfing are located a little down the beach on each side of where this photo was taken.

If you have not yet checked out the photos of the Maasi this week on our
Viva la Voyage travel photo site, please do so.

this looks so primal...as if it was taken at the end of the first day.

The colors and the light in the photo are beatiful. I think brattcat's "primal" description is perfect.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and this one is a dandy!
