July Desktop Image

Beautiful Arenal Volcano at sunset - Costa Rica
Here is my July desktop image for you to download, share and enjoy.  Just click HERE then right click to set as your desktop image.   It should not be pixalated or blurry.  If you have problems, let me know and I'll help.

Last November Jeff and I took a most memorable trip to Costa Rica.  Yes, it was this green and yes this scene did look like what I imagine Shangrila, Paradise and the Garden of Eden would look like all rolled into one.  The clouds are a combination of clouds and steam/gas  escaping from the volcano.  We could hear it rumbling at night, accompanied by the sound of howler monkeys in the trees.  This photo was taken from the balcony of our motel room,  and we were actually closer to this active volcano that it looks.  I wanted to include the beautiful sunset sky and the lush vegetation, so I used a wide angle lens, which, as we know, distorts perspective.
