Today’s post features some images captured during my February trip to Florida. As I always do, when traveling to Florida I always try to reserve a cabin at Myakka River State Park, just outside Sarasota … one of my favorite places to hike, photograph, and just enjoy nature!
When in the park, it is nearly impossible to spend some time without seeing American alligators, a prehistoric-looking critter. As with most tourists to Florida, I’m always fascinated to see/watch/photograph these armored river inhabitants. Here are a few of my favorite images I captured as they patrolled the Myakka River:
I especially love to find the gators in nice, reflected backgrounds:
… or even better, when a sunset’s reflected colors enhance the river’s image:
Coming up … more Florida travel images.
