Costa Rica Canopy Tour

Mar 5, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

This was taken in Costa Rica during a canopy tour in the rain forest. Definitely something worth trying while your over there. If you’re afraid of heights this is not the tour for you! I can’t believe how high some of the launch points are. And some of the lines are so long you can’t even see where it ends. I didn’t spend to much time processing this image. A quick run through Photomatix and Topaz was pretty much all I did. This was also shot without a tripod something I hate doing, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
