Image: MONEY KEY MANGROVE © 2016, Florida Keys;
Clyde Butcher, Gallery (LINK) (https://clydebutcher.com/pc/photographs/florida-collection/)


Photographic Story
While Niki and I were down in the Keys, we took the opportunity to explore Money Key Island. Itís located on the Atlantic Ocean side of the Seven Mile Bridge. The island is surrounded by coral, which makes it difficult to reach with most boats. We managed to bring our little Gheenoe boat as close to the island as possible. We then hopped out of the boat into very shallow water and very carefully walked around the coral while exploring areas for photography. When I saw this mangrove and its beautiful shape I knew it was perfect for a photograph.

Back in post #3, the 2 men with the wagon: I think the man sitting in the wagon is the artist Andrew Wyeth. The house is the one that appears in his iconic painting, "Christina's World". The other man in the photo is Christina's brother, Alvaro Olsen.

Just muckin' around. I shot these images the other day (Thursday), late in the evening. I've never been really happy with auto-focus lenses in these circumstances... and I'd rather my favourite drop-in screen from my Nikon F and a manual focus ring... but such is the price of progress.

So.. I desaturated a couple of the images
