Everglades National Park

As most of you know the Ken Burn's mini-series on The National Parks was a huge influence on my photography. Having grown up with little or no knowledge of these great American treasures it was quite inspiring to finally see the history of what he called 'America's Greatest Treasure'. Needless to say this immediately gained a high spot on my 'bucket list'...

Today's image was made while cruising out on the 10,000 lake area of Chokoloskee Bay, a part of our Everglades National Park. Obviously a very spontaneous moment, but then there are so many of these moments at this type of location - the images are regularly some of my favorites.

Photographed using a Canon 5DMKII, 70-200MM Lens
