Pedasi Panama is a photographer’s dream.
Kelli and I began a tradition of walking the beach at sunset during our 3 month stay there.
We supplement our daily dog walks with these evening jaunts.
Pedasi is a rural region of Panama consisting largely of cattle farms.
Hermit crabs, pelicans and sand crabs grabbed a few choice morsels before calling it an evening. A few stray folks enjoyed sunsets with us but we walked solo most evenings.
Humid, cloudy conditions dominating weather created dazzling hues, from hot pink to glowing amber. I zoomed in to capture the intensity of each color for various shots. Other snaps seemed better enjoyed with a palm tree outline adding tropical flair to the photo.
Pedasi has some of the best sunsets I’ve experienced, being up there with New Zealand, Fiji, Thailand and Bali.
Each night painted a different picture.
I even made a cameo.
Timing the tide proved tricky. Pedasi experiences up to a 12 foot swing between high and low tide. I sprinted back to the house more than once to avoid being swept out to sea or slammed into razor-sharp rocks.
I only had a few stretch here and there to capture these shots.
On some days it was too dangerous to take pictures at dusk.
Other days gave me the opportunity to capture spectacular shots like this.
The sun shimmered….
Haze crept over the mountains courtesy of the sea mist.
We kept an eye out for crocodiles. More than one local dog was consumed by the resident croc.
Pedasi was a dream.
As expats flock to this budding retirement hot spot, now is the time to enjoy its peace, quiet and serenity.
