Gulf of Dulce | Flying the narrow inlet of the Pacific Ocean
Exploring the Osa Peninsula to the south of Puntarenas province from the air I spotted a small island surrounded by crystalline waters. The strong visual impact of its horseshoe shape and the defined lines of waves called me to approach and take this image. The wave patterns on the water are caused by the diffraction of the waters approaching the sandy shallows. These ripples are processes associated with intense coastal wave action provoked by strong tidal changes that are much more evident during the full moon.
