Costa Rica Sloths

I have posted some aviation images elsewhere from my recent trip to Costa Rica but my camera and lens were packed really for the purpose of photographing some of the scenery and wildlife of this lovely country. Here are a few from my encounters with sloths.. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49619...

Matapalo Beach, Costa Rica

Whilst in Costa Rica we stayed at the excellent RIU Guanacaste hotel located on the beautiful Matapalo Beach. Some 45 minutes by coach from the airport we discovered quite quickly that flights inbound to Liberia Airport from the US and Canada started to make their final approach over the bay. If you...

Re: St Kitts Collection !

Passed through their (briefly) once when our flight from St.Maarten to Antigua stopped off. I use the word 'stopped' loosely as the aircraft just slowed to a very slow taxi, the rear door and stairs were out and the one disembarking passenger 'stepped off' like he was stepping off the rear platform ...

Just returned from a week in Lanzarote. A few interesting visitors seen but this was the pick of the bunch. F-OIXG, LET L-410UVP of Air Guyane Express. Almost caught me by surprise as it suddenly popped up on Flightradar24 just a few miles out from the island. Enough time however, to grab the camera...

Nice set. My 'second home'.... Probably get out there late Summer for a while, only a week probably this time as I'm saving my leave for a trip to Costa Rica in February.

Re: In the Pink in Lanzarote

We are staying at Las Gaviotas in Matagorda. Set back a little from the front but can photograph most stuff with ease with the 70-300mm zoom. It's barely 30 yards to the front from our room which is where the ATR photos were taken from. In this case from a small area just across the promenade from t...
