Journey to the Myakka River
April 10, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
I have always felt that your best photographs are taken in surroundings near to your heart. When my son was killed by a drunk driver in 1986, I fled into the Big Cypress Preserve. I spent countless hours in the swamp, eventually building our home and gallery within the pristine ecosystem. Spending time in the swamp and capturing its primal beauty restored my soul. After my stroke in 2017, I knew I needed to find that peace once again. I began an exploration of my new backyard searching for the tranquility I had found in Big Cypress. This search would bring me to Myakka.
