Myakka River Flood 2

Myakka River Flood 2
Its a bit difficult to know exactly where the designed sandy pathway runs but you can see part of it before going under that arched tree. Sometimes tho,you could only tell when the water got much deeper..then you had to back track to get back on the trail. There are periodic trail markers with info plaques space just enough to sometimes be able to see the next one ahead, but they are definitely not in a straight line.

It was not supposed to rain again until later in the afternoon, but this is "Sunny South Florida" where the Sun shines all the time,right?...Noooo.

It began to drizzle while setting up the camera and all my rain gear was back at the truck and I didn't want to go back and then come back out again. So I took a page from the Calossa and Seminole Indians and got up under a cabbage palm and pulled some palm fronds down over me and the camera and tied them off to the tripod..made a real good umbrella. If it was good enough for the Indians then its works for me.

I slogged on for several more hours fighting off hordes of Mossies and intermittent rain for a few more takes.

This 14mm Rokinon f 2.8 lens is really sharp and I wanted too use it some more.

That's a really lovely shot although it does remind me of the jungle scenes you used to see in old WW2 films about the Japanese!

Looks like the rainforests in Australia...beware crocs. Great shot with an eerie feel to it.
