|Florida Alligator up-close. Any closer and the gator
would run :-)
|A vivid rainbow over The Everglades prairie shortly
before sunset. Not a day here without a magic.
|Secluded sailboat with a departing thunderstorm
over Florida Bay.
|Seemingly never ending Everglades prairie offers
very private - no crowds, no hassle - quiet time.
|White Heron patiently scans the surrounding
wetlands for something to feed on.
|Departing thunderstorm over northern parts of The
Everglades. Late afternoon.
|Almost the end of September. Both Hurricane
Katrina & Rita passed through here. The storm
season is coming to an end and water reaches
almost all the way to the road. Usually there is
almost none to be seen here.
|The main road through the park. Some parts were
under the water. The elevation here is low -
somewhere around three or four feet above sea
level, most of the time even less than that.
|With the heating of the day lost the storms are
diminishing around the sunset time leaving
disturbed sky behind for a picturesque sunset.
|Hardwood trees in the morning mist shortly before
sunrise. Pay-Hay-Okee overlook.
|Cumulonimbus cell going up over the prairie.
