I'm a retired website builder and amateur photographer and decided to merge those two interests with this website.
My interest in photography is primarily due to the variety of birds and the abundance of wildlife in South Florida where I moved to in 2018.
Both the Everglades and Big Cypress National Preserve are a short drive from Naples and where I tend to go to take photos, along with the many closer nature parks, rookeries, and preserves in my area.
The vast majority of photos were taken in Florida, exceptions will be clearly marked.
It's told that Edward Leedskalnin single-handedly and secretly carved over 1,100 tons of coral rock to build his castle. Though not really a castle, and not really made of coral, it is still worth a visit. More than 1,000 tons of the oolite limestone were quarried and sculpted into a variety of shapes. The abundant Coral Castle stories have their roots in pseudoscience, psychology, and urban legends, not reality.
