Intracoastal Mangroves – Stuart, Florida

Sep 23, 2010 | Floral Plants & Trees, Florida Beaches & Coasts

Update: I redid this photo, converted it to a blueish black and white photo. I wasn’t happy at all with the last version when I woke up this morning. That one was in color. You can view that version by clicking here.

Mangroves are rather difficult to photograph. They are very cool to look at, but there’s a trick to shooting them that I still have yet to figure out. I guess what makes them difficult are the roots which usually makes the photo very busy. It’s hard to find a good balance with all the lines going all over the place. Eventually I’ll figure how to shoot these plants, maybe even develop a style on the way. Something like this mangrove photo I shot a while back… the scariest mangrove tree ever!
