Florida in 10 photos
What can you say about Florida that hasn't already been said in Miami Vice or a Carl Hiaason novel? Hence, just some pics from my trip with DKIsh to Florida.
"Quick DKIsh, grab the camera. This is the shot that confirms everything I imagined Florida would be!" Photo by Dawn Kish at speeds so fast it ripped the hair off these 20-something undercover agents.
Actually, this better sums up our Florida Experience.
Brown Pelican diving for fish, Sanibel Island.
Manatees in the vodka-clear, er, I mean gin-clear waters of Blue Springs. A polarizer is essential for such shots.
Wow, Tim Tebow's yacht must be out there somewhere. Near Estero Lagoon.
Can't an egret enjoy a crawfish in peace? The gulls eventually stole the meal. 1/1250 sec @ f/9, ISO 500, 500mm, D600.
You talking to me? Black Vulture, Everglades. Tight crop from the 80-400 @400mm.
Double-crested Cormorant, Everglades. Extreme backlight called for extreme adjustments in post: Highlights -66, Shadows +94, Whites -100, Blacks -50.
Dragonfly, a Halloween Pennant (Celithemis eponina) to be precise, Everglades. Nice hazy bright light allowed shooting at mid-day.
Token alligator shot, though not the cliche eyes and nose above water look. Again the polarizer was essential.
