What makes the tropics feel like the tropics? It could be the warm blue water, might be the temperature that never dips below 70, or it could be the never ending supply of cheap rum. All very good qualifiers, but to this Castaway the palm tree is the quintessential symbol that tells you that you’ve arrived in the lower latitudes. That’s why it’s the main element of the RSR logo.
Palms come in many different shapes and sizes. You have tall ones, short ones, green ones and even blue ones. No matter what they look like, after almost 11 years living in South Florida they still put a smile on my face.
This post is comprised of 11 absolutely stunning photos of palm trees. Taken by a few unknowns and a couple photographers that live and breath the coastal life, Old Mango and Ft. Lauderdale Sun, their photos will dazzle you. They’ll have you floatin’ or a flyin’, anything southbound, headin’ to the islands, grabbing a little white sand and chillaxing in the shade under the swaying fronds of one these tropical icons. (Bonus points for anyone who can tell me where the words from that last sentence came from!)
