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.
I just got back from a spontaneous trip to Florida. Last year, we had a huge spring break reunion for my college friends down there, and it was repeated again this year. I had given up the thought of going due to a number of things, but broke down and bought a plane ticket that would get me there halfway through the week late last Tuesday night. I showed up and surprised all but one person (who was my inside man), and it was so worth it. As I was editing through my photos from the trip, I realized that I had been inspired to begin my photo blog last year as a result of this same trip. I don't know what it is about Florida and these friends, but I get so inspired photographically when I'm around them.
This is a shot from the tail end of a day-trip I took with my friend Jeff down to the Keys. We drove there and back in a day, which was a bit crazy, but so worth it.
