Home to the Arctic Blast!

We decided on an early departure from Florida as it was cold and raining for the remainder of our stay.  I woke up Saturday to go to the Corkscrew Wildlife Refuge in South Florida only to find it a breezy 45 degrees and a major rain storm.  Staying in a hotel for 5 days and […]

Tricolored Heron

This is another image from my recent trip to Shark Valley here in South Florida.  It was only one of a few birds that were active near the Visitor’s Center.  However, it stayed quite a while on the trunk of this tree.  I was hoping for a fishing expedition, but the heron found an area […]

Shark Valley

Lake Nukuru

I have migrated my web site to a new platform that allows me better presentations on mobile devices.  After several years hosting on another platform, the usage on mobil platforms has grown to be one of the primary ways where people can access my work.  So, you can still follow me here on www.newdawnphotography.com as […]
