• Enjoying The Beautiful Melbourne Beach Sunrise

    Without question, Florida have the most beautiful sunrises I've ever seen. No matter what time of the year I always capture colorful sunrises. Many people wake up early in the morning to watch the sunrise in the beach.

  • Bahia Honda Beach At Sunset

    The old-railroad to Key West turned this remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination where the visitors can enjoy the beautiful beaches, magnificent sunsets and excellent snorkeling.

    I've been in this State Park several times chasing the perfect sunset. The last time I was there I found a good spot in the other side of the island and when I was ready to take the photos it had started to rain so I had to pack my equipment and get sheltered under the old bridge.

    Half hour later the rain stopped but the sun had already gone down. On my way to the parking area I noticed the bright light in the horizon so I decided to give a last shot in the beach. It was pretty dark indeed, but this camera does a good job in low light conditions.

  • Sunrise Over Alaskan Glaciers From Airplane Window

    I usually don't ask for window seats when I'm traveling by airplane, just because I don't like to bother the passengers next to me except when they are friends, so in that case I don't mind. LOL!

    In my last flight from Tokyo to Toronto, I was in a deep sleep (very unusual) when my friend woke me up exactly when the airplane was flying over the Alaskan glaciers just at sunrise, I didn't waste any time and I grabbed my camera from the overhead compartment.

    After reviewing the photos at home I noticed all the photos were pretty much in blue tones, first I thought I had the wrong camera settings, then I realized the whole landscape got the blue from the sky.

  • Avenue Of Oaks At Wormsloe Historic Site

    This breathtaking avenue sheltered by live oaks and Spanish moss leads to the Wormsloe Plantation where are the ruins of a Colonial estate. This place is near Savannah, Georgia, fortunately I was visiting some friends in Jacksonville, Florida and I didn't hesitate to drive two hours to visit this historic site.

    As soon as you pass the large arch at the property entrance you will be enchanted driving 1.5 mile (2.4 km) under these live oaks covered in Spanish moss gently swaying in the breeze. Definitely something worth to see!

  • Fisher Island Aerial View At Sunrise

    Fisher Island is one of the artificial islands in Miami Beach which is located in South Pointe across the Miami port, this island had the highest per capita income of any place in the United States, no wonder only celebrities and millionaires can afford to live there. The island is only accessible by boat, ferry or helicopter of course.

    I wanted to test my new DJI Inspire1 Pro quadcopter and South Pointe was the first place came to my mind to flight this machine.

  • Sunset In Bahia Honda Key

    The Bahia Honda state park is a nice place near the Key West in Florida where many people visit to enjoy the beaches or just to walk around the park.

    I've been there several times but never before sunset which is magic hour for any photographer. Even though the sunset that day wasn't the best one, the light was perfect to capture a truly memorable image.

  • Twister Cloud At Sunset In Clearwater Beach

    I was staying in a hotel right on the beach, so very late in the afternoon I walked to the shore to chase the sunset and as usual nature surprised me with these saturated red clouds shaped like a twister. To be honest, I didn't notice the moon was part of my composition until I got home and reviewed the photos.

  • The Foxtail Palm Tree Flower

    I have several Foxtail Palm trees (Wodyetia bifurcata) in my backyard but it never came to my mind to photograph their tiny flowers, these palms are endemic of Australia (I didn't know that until today).

    I haven't used my Canon 100mm Macro lens for a long time so I grabbed one of the flowers from the floor, set it on my tablet screen to achieve the reflection and here it is. I'm always happy with outstanding results of this lens.

  • Racing The Sun On Clearwater Bay

    I went to a high bridge overlooking the Clearwater Bay to get some photos of the sunset. The sun was just in the horizon when I noticed these three jet-skis at high speed heading towards the bridge I was, leaving long water trails behind. No doubt they were racing against each other.
