Evening to Morning…Three Mangroves

I find it interesting that in the biblical account of creation, it is stated “So the evening and the morning were the first day,” and so on. Each day is described as evening and then morning. When the Jewish sabbath begins, it begins on Friday evening and continues until evening the following day. The best account I’ve heard as to why morning follows evening is that during the initial stages of creation “darkness was on the face of the deep.” Then God spoke and made the light. So there was darkness, followed by day.

From these thoughts came a series of posts that I title “Evening to Morning.” This week I’m taking a look at a favorite Everglades scene, one that I call “Three Mangroves.” It’s a small collection of mangrove trees along a short stretch of beach on Camp Lulu Key. This key is adjacent to Everglades National Park in a place called the Ten Thousand Islands.

These images were made during two separate visits from December 2014 to February 2015. They show this particular spot of the Everglades as they appear from evening to morning.

  1. Gorgeous images and silhouettes.
    And those stars…….in the first & third image……amazing.
    Living in the inner city, I rarely get to see the stars.
    As always, thanks for sharing.

    • You know Vicki, I knew the stars would be great out west, but I didn’t know they’d be so great in this one part of Florida not flooded with artificial light. You can still see the glow of Miami and Naples, but there’s just enough dark sky…

  2. Beautiful images, Russ 🙂

    Really worth all the effort and patience…

    I really liked the night shots with starry sky 🙂

    Thank you so much for sharing and have a beautiful day 🙂

  3. Towers of Paine, the Indian boat in fog, the blue steps/structure have always been my favorites of yours
    #2 with stars right up there my friend! !
