sunset key largo.

If you've frequented my blog even a little bit, you know that I have no shortage of photos containing a body of water, a sunset or both. Admittedly, it's not hard to take a photo of a sunset and have it come out looking great, but that doesn't mean I'm going to stop anytime soon. This shot is a favorite of mine from a sequence of over 200 shots (no joke…) I took during a particularly spectacular sunset as seen from the "backyard" of a vacation rental spot in Key Largo while on my annual reunion trip with 20ish of my close college friends. Seen on the pier is a small group of said friends enjoying the view.

This photo is from a batch I took while vacationing with a bunch of my old college friends last year in Florida. One of our friends rented a convertible for the week (best decision ever) and it made me absolutely snap-happy every time we got in the car. This is one of my favorite shots of my friend Don while we were riding around one night.

My friends Tony and Liz own a house in Vero Beach, FL, which is where all of our friends (including me) stayed for our spring break reunion last week. There was one night in particular, after we'd had a bonfire and most everyone had gone inside to go to bed, that I just couldn't resist hanging out in the backyard and stargazing because the sky was just so clear. Of course, for me, stargazing entails also taking photos…so a few hundred mosquito bites later, I finally dragged myself inside, satisfied that I'd gotten at least one or two usable shots despite not having a tripod.
