The Stirring Of The Sea
A Typical Sunrise

I traveled with my friend Ivan to a spot in the everglades to catch a Sunset and hopefully shoot some star trails. Our journey began great traveling till we got to the Florida Turnpike! What a nightmare! what should have taken an hour, took what seemed two!

We luckily got to our spot just at the right time! Got our gear and walked to our location. The wind was almost still and the clouds looked amazing over the reflections of the lake. As the sun went down we took loads of landscape shots and as soon as the show was over we walked back to the car to eat the subs I bought earlier for dinner.

After we ate, we donned the mosquito nets, bug spray and I wore gloves – trying to protect every square inch of skin. Those little creatures were everywhere. We walked along the lake in the darkness, I had to use a head lamp to see where I was going because there was no moon. The reflection of the lake was just beautiful. We got to our spot on the other side of the lake and began shooting. . There was a bit of light pollution on the horizon, but the final result was cut short because I forgot to change batteries before I started. Even with 280 images, the short video came out pretty well – enjoy!
