Summer Thunder Over Florida’s Everglades

Summer Thunder Over Florida’s Everglades

Florida Everglades

The miracle of light pours over the green and brown expanse of saw grass and of water, shining and slowly moving, the grass and water that is the meaning and the central fact of the Everglades. It is a river of grass.

  1. flying cloud watching faces in water,
    Bringing rain for almost dead bush

    Mind blowing picture
    Feels like i can touch

    1. Thanks, you describe it so beautifully.

  2. Great shot Ron ~ capturing a storm coming in with sunny skies still around is always a pretty special time. The contrast here is awesome ~

    1. It was a special time. We hung around watching it all build with hopes of a shot. A good day. Thanks Randall.

  3. I love the contrast between the dry spikey grass, its rigid lines, and leached out colour, and the dark and building fluidity of the storm. I can almost feel the static 🙂

    1. Thanks, Trish. It was a special moment in that the sun was still shining in the foreground with the thunderheads in the background. It was all over and pouring in a few minutes. 🙂

  4. Yup agree! Great shot! ☺

  5. A really dramatic shot, Ron. Was there much rain after the impressive build-up of clouds and rumbles?

    1. We headed home after shooting there and, yes, had to drive through it all. Though the storm was waiting some by then. Thanks Sylvia.

    1. Thanks. The Glades certainly are on of my favorite places.
