Horses grazing by a billboard

I have shown a lot of photos of the beach lately, so let's take a change of pace and go inland for a few posts.  This photo shows a contrast between life at the beach and the rural, farming and ranching lifestyle in the countryside.

This is a photo of a billboard advertising "Life at Hacienda Pinilla," a 5,000 acre master planned, gated resort community immediately south of Playa Langosta and Tamarindo.  To reach there, one must drive on country roads, such as this scene of a group of horses grazing on the side of the road.

I have shown some photos in the past of the J. W. Marriott Guanacaste Resort, which is located at Hacienda Pinilla.  There has been some news recently that at Ritz-Carleton Hotel is also planned for this development.

This week we have photos of Angkor Wat and other temples of Siem Reap, Cambodia, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

They should take your photo of their billboard with the horses and make it their new billboard. It is far more appealing and eye catching.

Great shot.

Darryl and Ruth :)

Those horses are up to their belly in grass! They should be fat.

The horses are perfect next to the hacienda billboard. Great capture, Dave.

These horses are just following the grass where ever it takes them.

Two kinds of domesticated animals. These juxtapositions are all over Guanacaste.

Altho it's an attractive billboard, I definitely think they clutter up the environment. Party at your house last night?! I'm jealous, but glad your guests obviously had a great time!
