Little Mangrove Island During Sunset at Lake Worth Lagoon

I’ve decided to call this little patch of mangrove, Little Mangrove Island, I’m sure you can see why. Next time I’m hoping to catch this mangrove tree when it’s a lot more lush, which I’ve seen before. Lately it’s been kinda bare which could be a result from the winter season here in Florida. Yup… this is winter in Florida!

Mangroves from Lake Worth Lagoon at Munyon Island

I’ve said this before, mangroves are one of the hardest subjects to shoot. When you’re there, they look amazing, however they don’t translate well into a photograph. I think this is due to a lack of color and intensity of detail. That’s why when post process these images I will almost always convert to black and white or duo tone.

Driftwood at Lake Worth Lagoon by Munyon Island Florida

I tried again this morning for another shoot at Lake Worth Lagoon. I didn’t have any hopes for a good shot. But you never know what the day will bring until you get there. It didn’t bring much! I got less than five minute of color as the sun peaked through the clouds. It was enough to salvage this mornings uneventful sunrise.
