12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Calm before the storm in San Jose, Costa Rica.

This photo was taken July 2014 during my stay in San Jose, Costa Rica. Rainy season in Costa Rica lasts from May to November, and I was fortunate enough to enjoy sunsets like this almost on a daily basis. The reflection of the sun hiding behind the rain filled clouds always made for a picturesque scene, but this one in particular took my breath away.
