Shades of Grey

The Florida Everglades are a huge area of wetlands, so it’s really no surprise to find it rains quite a lot quite often. Or it shouldn’t be, anyway,

This was taken on an “official” boat trip through the Everglades which also featured a supporting cast of millions of mosquitos and one or two reptiles (Florida is home to both crocodiles and alligators). There were also plenty of birds – this is an osprey, startled from his perch on a tree stump by our boat.

We’d had a generally bright and warm day, but crossing a large lake the sky darkened, rain pored and it was only possible to photograph in black and white, even with a colour camera!
