Crossing the Border

The caribbean side of Panama and Costa Rica are known for Banana plantations. Back in the late 1800’s American Corporations were growing bananas in this region for the USA. They built a train line to be able to transport the bananas. This photo is of the train line crossing over the border of Panama and Costa Rica. It is not used today. The bananas are now shipped out of Almirante instead.

Pacific Sunset

San Juan Del Sur. It is a beach town community filled with hostels and pubs. It is a great spot to stay or travel through to get to the local beaches that are close by.

This is San Juan Del Sur Bay. It is an amazing place to sit an watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean.

Wake and Water Drops

I spent 2 months living and working in the Whitsundays. On one of my trips around the island, I took this photo on the boat ride to a snorkeling spot. It was an experimental shot. It has turned out a lot better than I thought. I had my hand hanging over the side of the boat as we were crossing the Whitsunday Bay.

Kookaburra sits in the….

I went for a walk along the Bega River one morning and found a couple of Kookaburras sitting in the Oak tree eyeing off the food on a picnic table. They were waiting for the family to leave something behind so that they could enjoy some also.

New Years by the River

I took the opportunity to get away from the big parties and celebrations of New Years this time. I went down to Bega River and watched the sunset and the moon rise. I wasn’t the only one down there. A few people were fishing and camping along the river.

Waters Recede

In January 2016 there were two floods across the Jellat Jellat Flats when the Bega River burst its banks. I took this photo two weeks after. It takes a long time for it to recede. As the water recedes, it leaves the land brown. The water that is now left will evaporate.
