The Florida Everglades is an ecosystem in peril. In certain places, however, one can see vistas as old as time where the slowly flowing sheet of water seems endless, host to a literal sea of sawgrass. This image is taken from the western levee of Miami-Dade county, which divides the natural Everglades from the hungry sprawl of humanity.

Location: the north-eastern corner of Everglades National Park just west of Krome avenue and south of Tamiami Trail.

Canon 5D MK II, Tamron 28-300 VC lens, handheld, three exposure (autobraketed), processed in Photomatix and Aperture

I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!
