The Sahara comes to Florida

A huge dust cloud from the Sahara Desert, floated over Florida’s east coast. I thought this may have an unusual effect on the sunrise. I woke up early one morning to find out. One of my favorite times of the day to photograph is blue hour. I got going extra early so I wouldn’t miss it. Blue hour turned out to be nice and blue. I’m not sure what I was expecting from the Sahara sunrise. It turned out to be a bit dull and lifeless. You can definitely see the haze from the Sahara dust. The sun was a few degrees above the horizon before it was visible. It was definitely not a typical Florida sunrise.

 


Foggy Mornings

I really enjoy foggy mornings.  The fog gives the landscape a surreal feeling.  A foggy morning seems very quiet and tranquil to me.  The fog changes the way everything looks.  It’s like you are in a totally different world.

Here are a few of my favorite images from the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge near Deland Florida:
