I have been eyeing this spot for quite a while, waiting for the right conditions. Needing a high tide and the right sunset to make it happen. A lot to ask mother nature to come together all at once. I made the trip down to Anne’s Beach driving  an hour and half just to get here, hoping the conditions would be just right. The remains of this mangrove tree are constantly changing. Breaking down bit by bit each day. I decided to create a panoramic in order to capture the vastness of the open ocean and create a contrast between the moving water and sky, isolating the motionless remains of the mangrove tree.


I took 5 different images and merged them into the final panoramic. Each exposure was 15 seconds long.  This allows the to water move enough creating a sense of motion and texture. The wind was blowing quite strong which caused a bit of vibration in some areas of the mangrove.  This made the conditions very difficult as I was set up in 3 feet of water. Keeping the tripod and camera still was quite a challenge.

End of the Pier

End of the Pier

The one of only remaining wooden fishing pier in Miami was being demolished. It has since been replaced by a new concrete pier. In the meantime it sits out lonely in the sea and inaccessible.

I had envisioned this image for quite some time. I had to wait for the demolition to get to the right point in order to capture it just as I wanted.  Months of waiting and driving out to see the progress, the time finally had come. The pier had been about half way dismantled setting up the stage, mother nature provided lots of wind and choppy water conditions to finally capture this scene as I wanted. In the end it all boiled down to taking nine separate image each at 180 secs to create the final image.

The Breakers

The Breakers

Breaker’s Hotel in West Palm Beach sits atop a 15 foot sea wall. Directly below this sea wall are a series of what I call break waters. I believe they were put in place many years ago to stop the beach from eroding. Well they did a terrible job as there is no beach left. What remains are the remanants of the breakwater.

The view from behind the hotel brings the tourist to look out to the ocean. This is my interpretation of what I saw that day as the sunset behind me and a stormy night was about to roll in.

Higgs Beach

Higgs Beach

This was taken in the late afternoon just before sunset. While I was hoping for some great dramatic sunset Key West is know for, I got a huge storm that rolled in instead. Luckily before the rain came pouring down I was able to get some shots in. I love the drama the movement in the clouds create against the couple sitting on the pier.

Dockside

Dockside

Driving home from Key West during Memorial Day Weekend there was a huge amount of traffic. Luckily the Keys are full of great local restaurants. This just happen to be sitting right behind the restaurant we stopped at to eat and let the traffic die down a bit. The water was quite calm and I really like the reflection of the dock shimmering in the water. I knew that with a long exposure the reflection and colors would be enhanced to create a beautiful image. All this happened while I was waiting for my dinner to come out and a beer in hand! Gotta love the Florida Keys!

The Way Home

The Way Home

One of my favorite subjects are the channel makers that lead boats in and out of the ocean bays. There are not many places where these markers sit close enough to shore to make something from them. Here in Matheson Hammocks Park there happens to be this special place for me. Over the course of about a year I would visit this location taking countless pictures learning how to get the perfect exposure and observing how different lighting conditions affected each outcome. Finally after quite sometime I got the shot I had envision for so long.

This is part of a series of daytime long exposures centered around the marine channel markers that lead boats safety in and out of the harbors and bays.
