A few weeks ago, I went kayaking at Weedon Island (Kayaking in the Mangroves), and I immediately knew that I had to bring my camera back to take photographs. The place is very difficult to describe, but sometimes it is even more difficult to capture in a photograph.
I spent my Sunday hiking and taking photographs. In the mangroves, the trees are dense and have a complex, knot of roots. Even at the brightest point of the day, there is a deep green shadow over everything. The water is shallow and still; it is an optical illusion, perfectly mirroring everything above it. When you stare too long, you start to forget which side is up. You can see and hear animals, birds, spiders (Spiders), and insects all around. It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, but in the wrong circumstances, I can also see it also being one of the most terrifying.
Anyway, these are some of my favorite photographs from the day.
