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.
If you’d like to see one of these images hanging on your wall, simply click on the photo above, click “buy” in the right hand corner, and before long it will be there.
Orion’s Mangrove is surreal. Perfection. I dream of that place. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks Whitney, I’d been near that beach many times, and then one day I saw it.
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…
Reblogged this on scotterit.
I look up and see the milky way over top of my hometown Waterford Ontario Canada
I love it when you can see into the heart of the Milky Way. I imagine there are some nice dark skies over large parts of Canadian tundra.
Beautiful images, Russ 🙂
Really worth all the effort and patience…
I really liked the night shots with starry sky 🙂

A beautiful series; and I love the concept of evening to morning to make your photos.
When I was in school we protested to save mangroves in a belt situated at Mumbai India. They didn’t cut it. You post reminded me of that!
Ah, I’m glad to hear you saved them!
so evocative, just beautiful
Appreciate that Pam!
