In the tropics, trees and plants stretch upwards as high as they can to get some sun, which barely reaches the forest floor.  At the top, the brilliant sunlight hits everything, resulting in the plentiful growth of leaves, fruits and seeds.  Since there is good food at the top, will there be an abundance of animals.  Nowadays, biologists study the tropical forest canopy using towers, suspension (hanging) bridges, and construction cranes.  In Costa Rica, you have access to a few of these bridges, where you can easily explore the rainforest and cloud forest from this elevated perspective to see interesting plants and wildlife thanks to aerial walking trails on hanging bridges tours.  Though the name “hanging” implies something that might swing through space, Costa Rica’s hanging bridges use safe metal structures.

Costa Rica’s rare ecosystem is internationally famous as one of the most extensive cloud forests in Central America.   At 1,800 m (5,900 ft.) elevation, this natural sanctuary is like a lofty green cathedral – towering trees drip with dew-soaked hanging moss and vines, splashed with colourful delicate orchids, bromeliads and ferns in all shapes and sizes. More than 2,500 different types of plants and animals, including 400 species of birds, call Costa Rica’s cloud forest home.

This photo was taken a minute before walking one of the highest suspension bridges in Costa Rica.

This photograph will be printed on premium professional acid-free photographic paper.  Properly framed and displayed you should expect no fading or degradation in print quality.  The paper has a lustre finish, which has beautifully saturated colours, a subtle texture, and a slight sheen without being glossy.  


All limited edition photographs include an additional white border for easy matting & framing.   Extra border can be trimmed carefully if needed for framing.  We recommend limited edition sizes be trimmed only by a professional framer.

Also, limited editions are signed and numbered by Cristina en verso (on the back) and come with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity that can be affixed to the back of the frame (once the print is framed).

Limited edition prices are graduated so that as the edition sells out, the price increases.
