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.
I love Santa Cruz California, in fact ever time I come to California I make it a point to visit this amazing place. The Santa Cruz Vibes are just awesome, I want to live there at some point in my life, but then again, where do I not want to live…
I need 10 lifetimes to live everywhere in the world, at least for a day in each place…
I shot this a few years back in Naples Florida, and believe it or not it is still one of my favorite photos. I really like going to the West Coast of Florida, it is much more relaxed over there and a lot more peaceful. I often go there to get away from the noise, and ofcouse to take some beautiful sunset photos. You can see my Naples Gallery here.
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)
