ST. SEBASTIAN RIVER © 2006Vero Beach, FL
I was working with Elam Stoltzfus on a documentary about the Aquatic Preserves in Florida when we came across the St. Sebastian River – a tributary that runs into the Indian River Lagoon on the east coast of Florida. As we entered the St. Sebastian River we found a quiet intimate sanctuary that felt good after the broad openness of the Indian River Lagoon. We quietly canoed up the river until I saw this beautiful oak hanging over the river. When I climbed out of the boat, I discovered the bank had a very steep drop-off. I had to crowd up into the bushes in order to not slip into the depths of the river, camera and all!
