Here is a closer photo of the cowboys who drove the cattle down the road and across to another pasture. They seemed to enjoy their job. They obviously dress casually for the warm weather.
You may notice the common tool of a machete hanging from the belt of the cowboy in the foreground.
I took this photo last summer, which explains the late afternoon clouds. Right now is the heart of the high season, with sunny, dry weather.
This week we are showing photos of the dry, mountainous Atacama Desert of northern Chile on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. It is quite a contrast to the lush green coastal lowlands of Costa Rica.
