52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge

Week 3: #5. Bird’s Eye View


At the edge of the canyon, where the road merges and begins its descent into the Boquete Valley, stands the Boquete Visitor’s Center. This popular spot for both tourists and locals alike overlooks the valley in which the little town of Boquete is nestled. Throughout the day, vultures ride the thermals above the meandering Rio Caldera, soaring to incredible heights and drifting low down as the winds take them. Standing above the valley floor, I watched them circle and glide above and below me. As the sun sank lower and lower and shadows darkened the valley, the clouds gathered along the canyon and surrounding mountains. The wondrous panorama before my eyes was also the vultures’ view, although I’m pretty certain they were not as appreciative.

  2. Beautiful photos and very powerful descriptive text describing the scene involved. I thought I was reading the first chapter of one of the new books I was asked to read for my book club. I wanted more……..
