Storm at sea

Here is a photo of a storm at sea off the coast of Tamarindo. This is late afternoon, as the sun is backlighting the clouds that have rolled in over the Pacific.

We do not get hurricanes in Tamarindo. Hurricanes from the Caribbean do not cross the tall spine of mountains that run through the central part of Costa Rica. Even the Caribbean side of Costa Rica is south of the hurricane zone.

The weather in Tamarindo is sunny and clear, with virtually no rain, from November until April. I do not mind the occasional tropical downpour during the summer months, as they turn everything lush and green, and are usually brief. They also add drama to the sea and sky, as this photo shows.

This week we are showing some photos of the architectural details of London on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

an interesting storm seems .. I like storms and see the explotion of many forces.. I never saw one in the ocean yet, but ever will I see.

Funny but this puts me in mind of Wuthering Heights. I think it's the mood of the sky and the water that you've captured.

This is a very dramatic sky! This would have been fun to watch from the balcony of your condo.
