I shot this photos one week before Hurricane Irma hit Naples Florida. We had no idea the devastation that Hurricane Irma would leave, we knew it was coming, but we did not know it was going to hit the West Coast of Florida.
I have been to Naples million time, however, this time felt different, it felt special. The day started by riding airboats in the Everglades national park, and it ended up at the beautiful Naples Pier.
The photography gods were with us that evening, making sure we captured the perfect sunset before the hurricane hit.
Every time I get the chance to go to the West Coast of Florida to shoot the sunset I take it. This is one of my favorite spots on the coast, it is Naples pier. It is an really cool place to photograph of just watch the sunset.
I can’t think of a time when I shot a bad photo here. This was on a very overcast day, it looked like it was going to start pouring, so everyone left the beach. I had the entire place to my self, it was perfect.
I shot this with a 14-24mm Lens here are my settings:
244 seconds at f/22 ISO 50 on my Nikon D800 (no filters)
