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.

What a beautiful world we live in!
