Travel Photo Contest – Jeff Lewis
This image was taken at Playa Guiones, the local surf beach in Nosara, Costa Rica. This is one of my favorite images from my two week stay in Nosara, Costa Rica. The locals would get up at sunrise to surf, chill out all day, and then head back down to the beach just before sunset, as these are the best waves of the day.
Much like a photographer who gets up early for sunrise, and stays out late for sunset, I felt we had a common goal, to capture that special moment, that only happens at certain times of the day. In this image I feel that our two worlds crossed, as I photographed the last light of the day, and the surfer headed in from her last wave of the day.
I plan to head back to Nosara this winter, hopefully to sharpen my surf skills, and capture more images of the local talent in this little known town in Costa Rica.
