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.
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.
The First Light Of The Day
It's no wonder that many people like to start the day watching the sunrise at the beach. A quiet moment to listen to the sounds of the sea and the waves gently touching your feet.
Sunset By The Clearwater Pier
A lot of people gather in these beaches in the afternoon to watch the sunset. I was staying in a hotel right on the beach so when the sunset time was close I simply grabbed my camera to walk in the beach looking for the perfect spot to photograph the sun.
Sunrise At Dania Beach Pier
I've always been a little lazy to get up early in the morning to photograph the sunrise. Last Sunday without any clock alarm I woke up at 5:00 AM, I grabbed my camera and I went to the pier in Dania Beach here in Florida. Some fishermen were already casting out fishing nets at sunrise, of course I thought about getting some photos of them in action but my camera wasn't ready for fast shooting.
I had a hard time changing my camera settings in the darkness, but after a few minutes the sun light gradually increased and I managed to capture the amazing colors of this sunrise.
Dark Sunset On The Beach
I decided to spend the Labor Day weekend in a beach hotel in Naples, Florida. To be honest I was thinking more about enjoying the hotel stay than taking photos. It was raining in the afternoons so without regrets I stayed in bed (very comfortable by the way).
The last night at hotel, one hour before sunset, even though it was extremely overcast I noticed a clear horizon, so I went running to the beach to capture this spectacular moment.

Waiting For The Sunrise
Big Orange Iguana Near The Canals
Definitely I couldn't get any closer!
I noticed there was a lot of these iguanas in a small park near my place, they all were resting on top of the mangroves or taking a sun bath in the grass. I got really close to this one, but he/she was always alert to jump to the water.

Good Morning Sunshine
I know it's hard to leave your bed early in the morning to watch the sunrise, but you gotta believe me, the rest of your day will be quite different.
