I shot this picture on a cloud-free morning from a pedestrian bridge over the Miami River Canal between Hialeah and Miami Springs (also known as the Okeechobee Canal). What I most like about this shot is the contrast between the recently updated Okeechobee Road in Hialeah to the right in the image and the wildlife habitat and old telephone/power lines running along the left (South) bank of the Canal in Miami Springs… Now and Then. This canal, once the Miami River, runs from Lake Okeechobee to Biscayne Bay. The bridge in the distance is the Miami-Dade MetroRail track.
The slight darkening in the corners is due to the fact that this image was shot through the chain link fence of the pedestrian overpass..
