Italian Fine Art Photography, Images of Rome

As I wandered the streets of Rome, the heavens opened and spewed forth this wonderful opportunity. I huddled in a doorway hoping for the rains to slow, when this image revealed itself, a colorful umbrella reflecting on the sidewalk below.

Swampscapes


Arthur Marshall Preserve, Boynton Beach, Florida

Swampscape #1

This infrared image was captured at The Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee Refuge Complex. It is composed of two national wildlife refuges in southeastern Florida. The refuge includes 145,800 acres of the northern Everglades habitat and has become my go-to place for peaceful serenity. The beauty of Infrared photography is that if you aren’t too excited about greeting the dawn or  waiting for sundown as is generally required with much of landscape photography, you can shoot when the sun is high in the sky which provides great opportunity.
