Matheson Sunrise
Miami New Times - An Article about my old Haulover photos

An Everglades Sunrise – the mist shrouded lake glowed as the sun rose.
It was 4:30am, as I left my house with my friend Ivan, traveling south to Everglades National Park. We arrive at 5:50am, at the Long Pine Key Lake, where it was so dark we could see the Milky Way. For some strange reason someone left three bright lights on at the south side of the lake. As we got out of the car, we felt the coolness of the morning – it was 57 degrees in APRIL! We thought that the mosquitoes would not bother us, but we were very wrong. Fortunately I packet my screening for my hat and quickly put that on as we stood by the lake. The mosquitoes were intense. I can feel the itchy bites on my fingers as I write this. After shooting for about an hour, the sun finally started to rise above the horizon, creating this wonderful rays of light through the fog around the Island. I shot many photos trying to get this image. I was so happy to capture this moment – it made my day!
