FLORIDA EVERGLADES

Page 1 of 5

Originally a smaller gallery of images just from a 2006 visit to Everglades National Park, this gallery is expanding to include photos from other trips since. Having lived in Miami for three years (an increasingly long time ago), the beaches, ocean, Lake Okeechobee and Everglades drew me out of the city often, in search of those wide open skies I had left behind when moving out of the southern Plains for the first time in my life.

The Everglades has branded itself in my past, present and future as an amazing and special place, a marshy version of the Great Plains, with astounding photographic possibilities and overarching grandeur of nature, near and far, large and small. Now, on somewhat regular trips to South Florida, I make my way back there on every possible opportunity. Enjoy!
