GATOR HOOK 5 © 2016
Big Cypress Swamp, Everglades
Photographic Story I took this photograph during the dry season. I rarely go out into swamp areas during the dry time of the year because it’s mating season, which makes ‘gators aggressive protecting their water holes. It is also mating season for all kinds of species, so in general ‘gators, snakes, etc. are aggressive. However, I had heard that the cypress trees were beautiful at Gator Hook and I was hoping there would be a little bit of water at their base to add a gentle feeling to the scene. It turned out to be a beautiful day and I got several wonderful shots of the area. Digital – Archival Pigment Print This photograph was taken with a high-quality digital camera.
