Río Borrosa

If you drive anywhere near the coast of Panama on a road where you can see the ocean, you’re likely to drive over some bridges and see a few rivers that flow to the open water.  There is usually more water in the rivers when the tide is high and water pushes back up the channel.  This time of year, in our district especially, even at high tide the rivers are still quite low.

On a recent trip with my friend in the province of Colón I snapped this blur of grass along a river that is still fairly high.  Colón has a tropical monsoon climate with heavy rainfall from May to December and has  small bursts of showers even during Dry Season.  The Azuero Peninsula where we live is one of the driest areas of Panama and we haven’t seen rain since mid December. We drove through a rain storm to get to our destination, something that would be a rare occurrence in early March…in the campo.

    What a lovely shot. The grass a bit blurred and the beauty of the river and water in full focus. It looks like a great place to walk and relax, very peaceful. Hope you enjoyed the drive in the rain 🙂
