Prop roots of a Red Mangrove (Rhizophora mangle) at low tide, Key Largo, Florida.

We are constantly challenged to create unique images.

How can you make your photography stand out in the crowd?
A fresh perspective on a common subject sometimes does the trick.

In this case, instead of laying down in the wet low tidal zone, I lowered the camera to the ground and without even looking through the viewfinder shot a series of images with the Canon 10-22 lens at 10mm. hoping to get some relatively straight horizon lines which I could crop straight.

Daybreak Fun

We live on a small island (Plantation Key, Florida) and we keep scouting for new locations.

It's quite a challenge, as most of the waterfront land is privately owned and inaccessible.

We found this site a few weeks ago and thought we would give it a try this morning.

Three shot HDR merged in Photoshop and post processed in Photomatix.
