Wherever I am in the world, I’m happiest when I’m near the sea. It helps when the beaches are as beautiful as this one in Costa Rica. 
Where is your happy place?

I managed to get through another cold, wet and grey Wednesday at work. All the time wishing I was back in Costa Rica exploring deserted beaches. 
In need of some travel inspiration today. Where in the world should I explore next? Comment below or use #trippingpixels in your travel photos. ——————————————

I spent far too long shooting this coconut. I lost count of how many shots it took to get this. When nature gives you the perfect prop, it would be rude not to take full advantage. —————————————————

On our quick two day tour of the Arenal/Monteverde area of Costa Rica. Our first stop was the Tabacon Hot Springs hidden at the base of the Arenal volcano. This place is absolutely stunning and definitely worth stopping off at if you’re passing through the area.

So yesterday I attempted to overcome my fear of heights, exploring the hanging bridges of the Monteverde cloud forest. Still afraid but glad I pushed myself. What fears do you face when you travel?

This beach was so worth the effort to get to. At one point we had the whole beach to ourselves. Our own slice of paradise. Finding it hard not to fall in love with Costa Rica!

Today my view has been mostly palm trees and blue skies. Relaxed and happy! 
What’s your favourite chill out view?

After trying to photograph fast moving birds it’s nice to have a subject that is slower. Love chilling with the sloths yesterday. Really hope I get to experience them in the wild when we head into the rainforest on Thursday.

Tucán Sam was rescued after being kept as an illegal pet in Costa Rica. He now resides at Diamante animal sanctuary. Sam is awesome!

Took a walk Down to Playa Matapalo yesterday evening. Spent a few hours watching the pelicans catching fish and waiting for the sun to set. I love Pacific coast sunsets.

Every trip we take starts with a day of R & R. As travelling the world is not my full time job, it’s nice to stop and take a break from the 9-5 life. This was our route to the pool today.

So finally settled in to hotel in Costa Rica after a mammoth journey, which started yesterday. A 5 hour drive to the airport, 3 hours sleep and then a 11 1/2 hour flight. Looking forward to a good nights sleep so I can start exploring tomorrow.

Two new additions to the travel bag for Wednesdays trip to Costa Rica. So lucky to get my hands on the new Sony A7 III, can’t wait to see how it performs. I needed a bag upgrade as well. The Lowepro Protactic 450AW is a monster. So much space for everything I need to capture Costa Rica.

Day 1 of @thephotographyshow over. Caught up with @markbaberphoto on the Sony stand to have my first look at the incredible new A7 III. Also got to chat to Adham over @lens_pimp about possibly hiring a lens for my upcoming trip to Costa Rica. Looking forward to Day 2 tomorrow.

I love a bit of lizard spotting while I’m exploring a new country. Found this little Leopard Anole hiding in a bush on the grounds of the Sandals Grande St. Lucían resort in St Lucia.
