Surfer silhouette

It is mid afternoon, as you can tell from the direction of the sun over the ocean to the west. But there is still enough daylight to make it worthwhile for this surfer girl to walk north along Tamarindo Beach, heading from the southern end where the waves are sheltered towards the northern part of Tamarindo Beach that is popular with surfers.

This looks like the type of afternoon that could produce a dramatic sunset, and in the meantime, why not relax on the beach and watch the surfers?

We are showing photos of Papeete, Tahiti, this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Love the light in this, love the silhouette, love the composition.

This is another photo that stimulates ideas, imagination, and desire for a particular way of life. Much like your header, which I also love; enjoy seeing it whenever I click on your site.

A wonderful beach photo! We were just in Norway and Sweden for a month of visiting relatives. While there, we visited the famous Pitea beach in Northern Sweden, not so far from the Arctic Circle!

Why not indeed. Man, what I wouldn't give to be doing what you're doing.

That's a really cool silhouette, with the sky behind that goes on forever.
