CAPTURE THE EVERGLADES AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY

CAPTURE THE EVERGLADES AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY

When I started this incredible journey I never thought it would become what it is today.

I first started coming to the Everglades 6 years ago when I first moved to South Florida, and I quickly fell in love with it.

I started photographing it, and quickly realized that this place was very challenging to photograph, but nonetheless it was incredible being out there. I wanted to share this experience with everyone I knew, so I started bringing my friends and family. They all would always smile at the incredible wildlife and sunsets.

I wanted to create an experience where I show people the Everglades from a locals eyes, and cover most of the Southern Part, (the coolest places) and at the same time teach them how to capture it through a lens. I also want to make sure to have people at the perfect spots at the right time. I have been trying to dial this in and I think my self and my team have it down pretty good.

I also wanted to create a sense of community and make everyone feel like family, were we are all friends, and it is amazing how within 20 minutes everyone feels like they are hanging out with their best friends.

The greatest thing about the workshops I do is that people come in as strangers and leave as friends. These awesome adventures bring people close together and the goodbye hug is always bittersweet… This images are form the last Everglades workshop of the season. Do not worry, I am currently working on the new schedule click on this link to register.

Calypso Cave Malta

Calypso Cave Malta

Calypso Cave is located in a cliff just off Xaghra; overlooking Gozo’s most sought-after sandy beach, Ramla Bay.

This site is thought to be the same cave Homer mentioned in `The Odyssey’ where Calypso, the beautiful nymph, kept Odysseus as a `prisoner of love’ for seven years.

Calypso had promised him immortality if he stayed with her, but he escaped when he could, and returned to his wife Penelope.

Stunning views of Ramla Bay
Natural sites – Calypso cave
It is presumed that the cave is a complex labyrinth, extending down to sea level at some points, however, stone boulders block the way a few metres inwards.

The cave’s interior and exterior are not too impressive but the magnificent views over Ramla Bay and the valley make the visit all worth it.

On the shore below Calypso Cave one can also observe the remains of the Marsalforn tower, a fortification built by the Knights of Malta in the early-eighteenth century to protect against sea-ward attacks. Source Malta.com
