"Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wetland and home to many endangered and threatened species. The many different ecosystems are able to sustain a large diversity of life. I was lucky enough to be able to capture one of the very rare and endangered species that calls the swamp it's home, the Ghost Orchid. Only about 2000 plants are left in the Everglades and to try to keep them safe from poachers their locations are kept secrect to those who are able to search them out. Luckily their beauty and awe can be shared through photography and the plant can continue its life in the swamp.
A Day on the Water Photography is an expression of how I live my life in the belief that nature is a gift. Focusing a light on what is often unseen and making it tangible for others inspires me. There is always an adventure when out on the water; from exploring the mysterious River of Grass, waist deep in the swamps looking at virgin cypress hoping not to surprise an alligator, to witnessing a mother dolphin teach her calf to fish in the 10,000 Islands. I hope to capture this beauty given to us in a lens and share it with those unable to enter into this magical world.
Dig in, never lose sight of the gift and if the image captured inspires, well done."
