Abstract:

In words and images the writer and photographer have captured the special flavor of the unspoilt but vanishing Florida scene. There will always be wild places in Florida. But as this century winds down they happen, even smaller and more rare. Even though most of these photographs were taken very recently, many of them and could never be taken again in the same place of the same scene, the same life forms the flavor is wistful. Here are the bayous and winding creeks, the fragile wetlands of the Glades, birds on the wing in the stillness of earth and sky turquoise intensities of water colors beyond white sands, high dunes, hardwood floors and pines and always magical sunsets unfolding their rose-tinted heads of a cloud after rain.
