Puffy rain clouds and shimmering ocean water, oh-my! This past week in Tamarindo, Mother Nature sure has been putting on a show with her rainy season beauty -- I'm talking about shimmering, crystal clear watercolor shades of ocean blue + green AND rain clouds glowing at sunset. Yes, it was that magical and I-may-or-may-not-have commented to my surf buddy while out surfing about 100+ times how beautiful the water was and how much I loved it. Just look at the colors of the water in this aerial photo of Tamarindo!!! 😍😍😍😍
But what the heck do I mean when I say rainy season? Does rainy season mean it rains every day, all day? And how long does rainy season in Costa Rica last? Let's get to it!
Rainy season on the Pacific side of Costa Rica is from the beginning of May to the end of November. During rainy season in Tamarindo, there usually will be a passing afternoon rain shower, which means a very lush, green landscape!
P.S. Did you know today is World Ocean's Day, and more importantly, eight million tons of plastic end up in oceans annually? What's worse is that the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) has 6 times more plastic than previously estimated - - 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic, weighing 80,000 metric tons, the equivalent of 500 jumbo jets?!?!
Can you imagine surfing or swimming in the ocean with plastic all around you? If we continue to use plastics at the current rate, by the year 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish!!! There definitely is nothing like enjoying a sunset on your surfboard with plastic surrounding you...
We need to protect our beautiful planet -- make a pledge today to reduce your use of plastics, recycle, and be kinder to our environment!!! I always have an insulated, re-usable water bottle on me and I walk or ride my bike to the beach every day!

One of the most common questions I'm asked is my journey of becoming a photographer.
How did I get started?
Did I study photography in school?
How long have I been photographing?
So how about we take it back, answer your questions, and chat about how my love of photography started?

Do you hoard digital photos, too?
If you’re like me, you have thousands of photos on your phone. And if you’re really like me, you have multiple 5TB external hard drives full of digital image files... 🤣
But you know what?
