Honestly I can’t remember where I took this photo. It is one of these two places: Key West or Biscayne Bay Miami. I took it just about one year ago on our vacation in south Florida. We drove down from Miami to Key West for Christmas and returned back to Miami on our way to the Marco Island. I took a lot of photos during that vacation, so sometimes it might get confusing, what is where.
Thanks folks for visiting and viewing my photography. Your comments are appreciated. If you haven’t figured it out yet, you can click on the photo and it will open in my photo gallery where I have the same image but at a higher resolution. So if you have a big monitor, you might enjoy it better than the small one below.
BTW, I did not plan it, but just realized that yesterday’s photo and today’s photo are on diagonally opposite points. Nothing significant about it, but still kind of interesting that I processed them in this order.
I had only a few minutes to take this photo, they were shutting the gate and we had to get out from the lighthouse area. You can’t see from here but I was positioned right next to the fence on the rocks and could not move a single each farther away from it. Thankfully I had wide angle lens on the camera and it was able to fit the whole thing into it. You probably saw couple other images of this lighthouse, check them out under Miami category.
The sun is actually behind me in this photo, shining strong on the white walls of this light house with almost like burning bright reflections over the side walk. We probably had extra five minutes at this place before they closed the gates. I wonder if you can take picture there in the summer as sunset will be much later and they might not stay open that late.
Taking photos of fireworks isn’t easy, I actually never tried it before. Last night was the New Year 2011 night and we were in Miami, close to Brickell Avenue. This photo was taken from the seawall from the Biscayne Bay, Miami business downtown to your left and the little island with what look like residential apartments is on the right. We didn’t know where the fireworks will be visible from our location, I was hoping it will be right in the center of this photo, between those two high rises and much higher. It actually was to the left and not very high. I took a few pictures but most produced nothing interesting. This one was the best of the bunch. From this location we also could see fireworks at the South Beach and bit more north from the Miami Beach, those were quite nice, but they were really far and none produced any good photos.
