Flowers, hills and clouds

During a gentle late afternoon rain, the clouds dropped so low that they touched the coastal hills just 15 or 20 minutes inland from Tamarindo. The elevation of these hills is probably about only 200 meters (700 feet) above sea level.

I took these photos about a month ago when I drove the back roads to Santa Cruz on my way to the Liberia Airport to pick up my wife, who flew into Costa Rica a day after me. I will show some more photos from this little road trip in the coming days.

This week we are showing photos of the Villa Melzi in Bellagio, Italy, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

What a pretty scene. Those flowers almost look like poinsettias.

What a nice composition, Dave. I was thinking poinsettias, too.
