Candy-colored sunset in Costa Rica

Photo: Shea Gunther

I spent a lot of time in Costa Rica over the last month or so, first whilst on honeymoon (lots of stories to come from that trip), and then again on a dental tourism trip (again, more on that later).

It was on my second trip to the country that I snapped this amazing sunset photograph in the mountains not too far outside the city of San Jose.

No filters or Photoshop tricks were used. This is just pure photons.

Click over to Imgur to see more of my sunset photos. You can find the image above, at a higher resolution, here.

What a beautiful world we live in!
