If I had to sum up the Florida Keys in three nouns it would be Water, Boats, & Sunsets. Verbs would be Vibrant, Relaxed, & Inclusive. Here’s a selection of images from a drive down to the most Southern part of the United States. Let’s start with a multi-story boat park. Much more photogenic that our multi-story car parks!
Iguanas are in abundance too.
People there do like to have decorative mailboxes.
Here’s the lighthouse in Key Biscayne, and some oak barrels standing outside a cottage in the area.
Key West is the most Southern city, and it was very busy. I’ve never seen so many shops selling t-shirts with messages emblazoned on them, or bars with live music during the daytime.
At a butterfly garden there are a couple of flamingos, and one of them (called Rhett) can apparently read 🙂
Stunning sunsets were in abundance, and I lined myself up to take the photograph at the bottom as if the fisherman was trying to reel in the sun.
Another evening, another location. This was on the return trip back up The Keys in Islamorada, and all the following photos were taken on an iPhone. I then imported them into my photo editing programme (Adobe Lightroom Classic) and have tweaked some of them.
This is the life. A cold glass of wine, a warm evening, and a beautiful sunset enjoyed with somebody special.
All the final photos were taken at the same place as the sky changed colours.
Sailing off into the sunset.
That’s all my posts from my recent trip to the U.S.A. It was frustrating at times only having one lens for my camera, but I’ve still managed to capture a lot of photos that bring back memories for me. Since returning home I’ve spent 3 weeks sorting ‘stuff’ from the theft and missing hand luggage, and insurance claims are still ongoing. Fingers crossed that travel insurance for baggage is worth having!
