Photographer's Note

Well, I made it back from Costa Rica safe and sound.
I couldn't take my good camera b/c I was going to be sleeping outside mostly and it is too new for me to think about it getting rained on. So I took my old one.

Where I was definitely did not have the photo opportunities I was hoping for. I was visiting a friend and he lived in a little gringo enclave, so it was like going to a different country only to encounter the stuff you just left.

But I figured I had to take the shamelessly steriotypical "beach at sunset with palm trees" shot. I know it has been shot more times than anyone can count, but it was the best I could being as uninspired as i was.
The sky is pixalated b/c of the compression, it is not like that in my version.

crop, boarder (smaller thanks trey)

lightened the trees in a neat way in photoshop:
-duplicate the original layer
-change the blend mode to screen
-decrease opacity to about 30
