10 Reasons To Love The Everglades

Often, people are surprised when I tell them one of my favorite places is south Florida’s Everglades. I immediately fell in love the first time I visited, over 15 years ago. And every visit since then, I find new reasons to love this unique ecosystem.

So, what makes the Everglades so special?

10. There is a magical quality to the light.

9. It is a haven for a plethora of bird species.

8. Wildlife abounds.

7. The sunsets and sunrises are routinely awe-inspiring.

6. There is no shortage of backroads to explore.

5. Even the smallest of details are stunning.

4. The ecosystem is unique and intensely diverse.

3. It is accessible, yet feels remote.

2. Beautiful beaches are only minutes away…

1. It’s a National Park for a reason, folks!

If I have piqued your interest, consider joining me this winter in Everglades National Park and the surrounding areas on my most diverse nature photography workshop!
