Florida Photography Through The Eyes Of A South Florida Photographer One of the most beautiful states for photography is Florida. With it vast bodies of water including rivers, canals and one of the largest lakes in the United States, Lake Okeechobee. Florida attracts some of the most diverse wildlife found anywhere. In the Florida Everglades, thousands of plant and animal species can be found in this vast mix of marsh and sawgrass flatland; including alligators, florida panthers, bears, wild boars, egrets, ibis, hawks and a variety of fish. Florida's "National Everglades Park" is one of the biggest state preserves in the nation. The Everglades flow of water actually begins near Orlando with the Kissimmee River, which discharges to Lake Okeechobee. Water that seeps from the lake makes its way nearly 100 miles south and 60 miles wide to South Florida and makes up the Everglades. This is a photographers dream for photographing birds, alligators and miles of tropical hardwoods and Florida Pinewoods. Clyde Butcher is a well known photographer in the Everglades with his popular black and white landscapes. Just 25 miles east and you find yourself at the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. On the water you can find plenty of pelicans trying to get a handout from the many fisherman fishing off of the piers. With an investment of an underwater case for your camera, you can explore miles of a three reef system that runs from West Palm Beach to Miami and finally to the Florida Keys. One of my favorite places to shoot underwater photography has been Key Largo's John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. The park's protected waters encompass nearly 70 square nautical miles of living coral reef and thousand of species of salt water fish. The water often boast visibility from 100 to 200 feet. It is the top destination in the United States for scuba diving. South Florida is also home to many species of Parrots including the noisy but plentiful Quaker Parrot. They can be found in large flocks in high trees chattering away against blue skies. So this is why I call Fort Lauderdale my home. Living just 20 minutes from the Florida Everglades and 20 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean is my idea of paradise as a Florida Photographer destin florida photographer
