A month after my return, I’m finally through my photos from Europe. Since I’ve continued to snap photos nearly every day, I have a backlog to share from a business trip to Florida, a trip to the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum, several long walks in the woods, a few new photos of my cats, and more.
To kick off the shots from Orlando, Florida, here is a shot of Shingle Creek. Shingle Creek is the northernmost part of the Everglades watershed. The cypress trees that line the banks of the Creek were used to make wood shingles back in the 19th Century, giving this part of the protected wetlands its name.
What do you think? To get this shot, I had to leave the trail (which was against the warnings about alligators) and climb down into a swampy area that was muddier than I anticipated.
