This is like adding insult to injury, right? I’m about to write about my afternoon in the mild air of South Florid. By all rights I should be buried under two feet of snow. I am not!
As photo expeditions go this one was well planned out. A few weeks ago my friend John had recommended visiting Green Cay. I immediately found the time of sunset and the proper place to stand to catch. Then I went to Flickr and looked at shots others had taken there. The night he suggested it John was emailed a map showing where I thought we ought to go.
Green Cay in far western Boynton Beach, Florida is farmland transformed into wetlands. With 1.5 miles of boardwalk Green Cay is publicly owned accessible wilderness.
Green Cay emulates the Everglades ecosystem with a wide expanse of marsh habitat and intermittent tree islands and cypress hammocks.
You’re supposed to learn about nature at a place like this. I did. I also learned my father’s blood has thinned out to the point you could read a newspaper through it! With the temperature in the mid then lower 60s he was ready for a scarf, gloves and a hat!
Here’s a little taste of what we saw.
