Five o´clock in the morning, I am awake since two hours ago as a consequence of the jet-lag. The difference with Spain is 8 hours here in Costa Rica. It is a wonderful opportunity to go out and to take some photos of the dawn, never was so easy to get up so early. We are in Playa Herradura, a nice place in the pacific coast of Costa Rica, a walk through the beach allows me to enjoy the quietness of the hour. I take some shots using a PCV chair taken in the hotel´s garden to place my small tripod (gorilapod), the only one I was able to place inside my luggage. I finish taking photos and go back to my hotel room, there are still two hours for the breakfast. The walk has been productive.

HDR made using 5 shots with different exposition. Processed with Photomatix and Lightroom.
