)-- Gray winter skies got you down? Longing for a getaway to a tropical paradise? Look no farther than Costa Rica 2010–2012, by Joanne Ehrich.
This glorious two-year calendar from Zenjo Press offers photographs that will lift your mood every month for the next two years, as it takes you on a scenic tour of enticing landscapes from Central America.
Bordered on both sides by water – the Pacific Ocean to the northwest and the Caribbean Sea to the east – Costa Rica shelters within its borders 5% of the world’s biodiversity. A generous sampling of that is contained in this calendar’s 84 striking images. The rich blues and lush greens of a Costa Rican rainforest, punctuated by the brilliant hues of colorful birds and butterflies, offer the perfect setting as regional wildlife populates these pages. In settings that include not just forests but waterfalls, pools, and beaches, the creatures of Central America – including the shy tree sloth and her baby – make their appearance.
Colorful frogs and the intense jaguar vie for your attention as their images practically leap off the pages. Birds of paradise, orchids, and other colorful blooms bring cheer to eyes wearied by winter landscapes and office cubicles. Fantastic birds, from the exotic toucan and multi-hued parrot to the blue heron and the more commonplace chicken – looking strangely at home in such wild surroundings – flaunt their bright plumage in a feast for the spirit.
Many different types of lizards vie for attention, and deer and cattle show that the familiar can be seen from an entirely different point of view. Lest the wildlife adventure seem too safe, the stare of jungle cats and the lurking silhouettes of crocodiles punctuate this adventure with the breath of danger.
Calendar pages list major holidays and events, and provide space to record appointments and special dates. The calendar covers two full years, providing plenty of opportunity to daydream about that tropical vacation or record long-range plans to make your own escape to Shangri-La.
