Hurricane Irma left a bit of destruction behind. From a lot of trees all over the place to boats, I mean lots of boats. The Miami waters look like a Hollywood set from a Sci-fi movie.
I have visited a lot of marinas in the past couple days, and all of them have boats all over the place. Talking to the workers there were a lot more boats before as the owners and insurance companies have been showing up to salvage what is left of their vessels.
I shot these at a marina close to my house. There are so many boats here and these are some of the leftover damage. I shot all these with my Mavic Pro and I edited them with my DJI Lightroom Presets, the Coastal Preset to be exact.
Looking at these photos makes me a bit sad, what once was someone’s dream to have an incredible boat, is now just litter in the ocean… A reminder of the power mother nature carries.
The simplicity of this photo brings me joy, this is what life should be all about, living in tranquility with out the worries of the world.
The reason I live in Miami is because of the weather. It is always beautiful here. Sure we get some rainy days but hey 90% of the time is sunny, warm and beautiful. I think this picture translates that very well. I wanted to get the boat cruising by in motion to create a sense of movement in the photo, while the sail ship in the back is perfectly still surrounded by birds.

Here is a shot I took of the amazing Miami skyline form a new angle. This skyline has to be one of the most beautiful in the country, it has all the elements, tall buildings, beautiful sky, water, and some insane boats.
I love shooting around here, you would think that after 7 years I would be over it, but I’m really not, its forever challenging and beautiful.
How I keep things interesting is by going around new places trying to find new perspectives.
