TAMIAMI TRAIL 3 © 1992Western Everglades
Rarely do people think of wildflowers when they think of Florida, but we have many beautiful varieties. I captured this image of a storm gathering over a field of Swamp Lilies a few weeks after Hurricane Andrew had hit south Florida. The ‘stress’ the hurricane put on the environment caused an abundant explosion of wildflowers throughout the Everglades. I was pleased to be able to capture them in their fullness to share with others. Tamiami Trail 3 was taken with a Deardorff 8×10 camera on T-Max 100 film.
