THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

Here’s a story that seems appropriate today. Twenty years ago I hired a pilot to fly me over the Everglades at sunrise to photograph the damage from Hurricane Andrew.

Fortunately, the devastation was confined to one strip right up the middle of this World Heritage Site. One of the areas spared was the nearby National Wildlife Refuge called 10,000 Islands, Their mangrove estuaries are pictured here. This sanctuary is just southeast of Naples, Florida. Hopefully, it survived Hurricane Irma.
