South Florida - page 1

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is a resort area north of Fort Lauderdale. Both are located less than an hour north of Miami on the Atlantic coast of Florida. While Lauderdale-By-The-Sea has a fine sand beach facing the Atlantic Ocean, other than an occasional bird and the long fishing pier, it has little that attracts me as a photographer. As a result, you will find a number of fishing pier images and bird images on these three pages.

The Everglades is a very wide southward flowing river through South Florida. For much of its length the river is fresh water; thus, making for a different ecology than the coastal areas of Florida.

We took an airboat tour of a small section of the Everglades finding many alligators and some birds. I now have many photos of alligators. Three of my favorites are below.
