Friday Snapshots: Beach Scenes in Bocas del Toro, Panama

This week’s snaps are coming to you from the idyllic beaches of Bocas del Toro, Panama, a small archipelago in the Caribbean not far from the Costa Rican border.  Bocas has been our first stop in Panama and it’s setting the bar pretty high.

In many of these, I had fun taking advantage of the iPhone’s powerful selective focus capabilities.  It’s almost like I don’t even miss my Canon!  Ha, just kidding.

Regrettably, I neglected to write “Wish you were here!” in the sand and strike a seductive pose next to it, but I hope you can feel the sentiment through these photos anyway.Bocas del Toro, Panama Bocas del Toro, Panama Drift wood on the beach in Bocas del Toro, Panama The beaches of Bocas del Toro, Panama The beaches of Bocas del Toro, Panama Beaches of Bocas del Toro, Panama Panamanian beer on the beach in Bocas del Toro

    I always wonder how people can take such good photos with their phones. It must be an iPhone thing because my Android certainly doesn’t take photos like that!

      Ha, it is quite impressive, isn’t it! And the newer iPhones (mine is the 5s) have noticeably better cameras than the older ones. I can’t wait to see what the iPhone 6 can do!

    I think these are solid for an iPhone! I had no idea about the selective focus feature (I’m still working with a 4s til I can get my hands on a 6). So sorry about your camera though. I thought about investing in one for my travels, but I think it’d be too much for my nerves to handle. Hell, I even get nervous about losing my iPhone. I’m excited to hear more about Costa Rica!

      I’m TERRIFIED of losing my iPhone now, as it’s all I have left! It’s not a good feeling to have. I did make it through quite a lot of traveling with my SLR before this happened, it’s a shame that one moment of carelessness ruined my streak. It’s definitely worth the risk to have a nicer camera, in my opinion.
