Miami Boats After Hurricane Irma

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.

Amazing sunsets in Miami

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.

Miami Reflections

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.
