Exploring Tanzania February/March 2017

Post 4 – Weather has such and impact on landscapes.  There is just no such thing as “bad weather”.  It’s nice to have a variety, and we did.

This is our last post on this trip. We hope you will join us on one of our future trips to Tanzania.  And if you are just starting the blog, please scroll down through posts 1-3.  The first photo in post 1 I have in my head all the time. It’s my “go to” space when I need a boost.  Following are some miscellaneous animal photos, some of them quite entertaining.

As we kayak and travel by small boat through mangrove channels and rivers, we see many reflections in the smooth waters.  Here we see many birds, monkeys and other critters.

Post 1 – Costa Rica, diverse and special, friendly people, and to us, feels like home. We visited Costa Rica twice in 2014 and will again in 2015. We love the cloud forests and how it shapes trees and mountains into mystical scenes.

Costa Rica is a land rich in wildlife and diverse environments.  Below the cloud forests, flora and fauna call the photographer to design from trails in the rainforest canopy, capture birds and monkeys with long lenses, and discover the world of the rainforest floor with a macro lens.
