Introducing the Bocas Breeze Photo Challenge!

by Sharon Adam

I know many of you love to take photos of the wildlife of Panama, so we want to celebrate your great photography by giving you a monthly challenge. Send your photos, with a brief explanation of why it resonates with you, to and we will put it on our website and Facebook page. The Bocas Breeze community will be invited to choose their favourite. We will publish the winner who will also win a prize!

Rules: It must be your photo and e it should be a true representation of what you saw, so no heavy handed processing. Filters are allowed as is some burning and dodging. Watermarks should be small, or preferably none at all as we will give you credit for the photo. Any queries should be sent to

This month’s theme is “The Golden Hour – Sunrise and Sunset over Bocas.” I often find its 10 minutes after the sun has set that the clouds come out. I took this shot with my iPad. I loved the vibrant colours and light bouncing off the clouds. Send us your favourite shots of The Golden Hour.


The very first Bocas Breeze Photo Challenge is sponsored by El Ultimo Refugio. The winner of this month’s photo challenge will win an entree at El Ultimo Refugio, home of fine Caribbean fusion, over the water (open 6pm Mon-Fri).
