  • Sunset on the Beach at Isla Palenque

    Isla Palenque, Panama, sunsetSome four thousand feet long, with a southwest-facing crescent shape and iconic point on the western end, Playa Palenque seems designed for watching the sun set. Over the last few months, as the change in seasons from dry to rainy has rolled in adequate cloud-cover to allow for the most breathtaking of sky paintings, some of Amble’s team has had the chance to observe and photograph dozens of sunsets. This slideshow contains 14 photos from our collection; though all have been taken from roughly the same point, the variations created by differing humidities, cloud formations, and photo framings reveal how different one sunset can be from another. And while I believe these photographs are beautiful, it is tough to do justice to the whole panorama of a great sunset, and the way the shifting light sometimes suffuses the beach, rocks and jungle with a truly sublime glow. As is so often the case, you really just have to be there.
