Sunset in Dominical


What's your favorite time of day?  Mine is when the night evaporates into day.  Sunrise.  There's gentle warmth, birds singing  zip-a-de-do-da, soft sunlight and the smell of bacon frying!   But at sunset, time slows down as the sun slinks back into the ocean.  That's where it goes, right?  The ocean swallows it up and spits it out the other side.  Well, I like to think so.   




Dogs love to romp on the beach at sunset.


People love to walk and share stories of their bountiful day in paradise.


Coconuts also like to bask in the receding sun. I love this photo.



I'm mesmerized by the light and color of this photograph.  Thank goodness the fiery memory lives on inside the travel section of my brain.  We were relaxing on the terrace of a grand and exotic ocean side estate, sipping embellished and expensive drinks while eating shrimp with a chocolate and papaya reduction.  I'm kidding!  We were parked on a weathered old stool at Rio Lindo.  The lowly town pizza joint.  Clean?  Sometimes.  Tasty?  Absolutely.  The view?  You decide.

Rio Lindo sits along side the Baru river. The Baru hugs the wilds of Dominical jungle before depositing into the sea.  At night, slim white egrets glide over the green water and head into the most amazing sunset you'll ever see.  And this sunset happens every single night.  

The price?  Pizza. Oh, and a plane ticket to Costa Rica.

You've seen Costa Rica. Now head over to post card perfect Panama over at The Chorus of the Crows

I'm with you on sunrise Sharon. Sometimes I regret living on the west coast. Your sunset photos are simply stunning.

Costa Rica has never been on my wishlist but your photographs make me think it should be.

I love sunrise as well, the quiet yet no so quiet awakening of the day. the calmness that comes with watching it. I also love sunset as a beautiful end to a day, no matter what it has been like, that lets daylight slip into night. I love your orange sunset shots, particuarly the last one.

The last one is stunning. I'd rather sit on a weathered old stool that some fancy wicker chair!!!

My kind of restaurant especially on the beach, especially in that weather with those sunsets. White tablecloths and fancy clothes are for rainy days in stuffy cities. Stunning skies. (I generally prefer sunrises too, but sunsets like that can make me change my mind!

Stunning photographs. What an amazing view and with pizza too! I can feel the warmth from the photos and am very jealous as it's freezing here. The colours of the sunset are amazing. Thanks for linking up to #MyFavouriteTrip Polly :)
