“Florida’s natural beauty is often most evident in its aquatic preserves. They are Florida’s natural watery Edens—home to freshwater springs, seagrass meadows, and mangrove forests that provide food and habitat. Florida’s aquatic preserves truly are living waters. Clyde Butcher celebrates Florida’s aquatic preserves, capturing magical moments through his breathtaking photographs. His interest and respect for Florida’s natural environment is genuine.

Mr. Butcher’s photographs will inspire you and touch your curiosity and concern for the wonders of Florida’s aquatic preserves—our living waters. Water runs through, around, and under Florida, creating its varied landscapes and biological diversity. Mr. Butcher’s photographs remind us that this natural heritage is entrusted to us to maintain for future generations to enjoy and appreciate.”—from the foreword by David B. Struhs, Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

Clyde’s images are captured with an 8” X 10”, 11” X 14”, or 12” X 20” view camera. The large-format camera allows him to express in elaborate detail the textures that distinguish the exquisite beauty of the landscape. The book is the companion to the PBS documentary, “Living Waters: Aquatic Preserves of Florida.”
