The iconic Z
Everglades, Florida, February 2015
Probably the more iconic Cypress tree in the Everglades, shaped in a Z form.
One says that the Z form comes from the Indians who used to bend young dwarf cypress trees to indicate directions.
Clearwater, August 2014
The summer is almost there so does the thunderstorm season. This image was taken on Clear Water beach, end of August. Whereas the initial intention was to capture a sunset over the pier, mother nature had decided differently and welcomed me with a threatening thunderstorm passing by.
Quebec, October 2017
Although, it was almost the end of the autumnal season, there were remaining colored leaves in the trees. This particular scene gave me the impression that I was in front of big gates, opening on the forest.
Sanibel, Florida, July 2015
At the very south point of Captiva Island, at the junction with Sanibel Island, Florida, a summer sunset brought colors and tranquility
Louisiana, December 2015
The Bayou in Louisiane are similar to the Everglades in Florida, in the sense that they can be an extremely slow-moving stream of river water, but also a marshy lake or a wetland. They are home for alligators and crocodiles, as well as many other animals and birds
Turret Arche's Spider
Utah, July 2017
Like a lot of harsh condition areas, there are a lot of dead trees here and there in the park. This one looked to me as a kinda spider, looking after the Turret arche.
Sunset at Pine Glades Lake
Everglades, Florida, December 2014
Although it was in December, the temperature was very warm, which, with the moisture, was a paradise for the Everglades mosquitos. Combined with the inhabitant of this lake, an alligator who was interested by my presence on the edge of the lake, taking this picture was not as easy as I would have thought
Bayou, Louisiana, December 2015
That was during a ride on a boat in the Bayou, just before returning to the dock, that the sunset light started to reflect in the clouds, giving a ghosty aspect to these trees
Opening on South Pointe
South Beach, Florida, February 2016
I was out for a sunrise on Miami Beach South Pointe, but the weather was not at the rendez-vous, the east was totally cloudy. I was about to give up, when turning 180 degrees, I saw this opening in the clouds and the glow of the sun was drilling from the west.
Blowing Rocks Preserve Sunset
Florida, June 2016
This area of south Florida shores, on Jupiter Island, is surprising by the presence of this Anastasia limestone outcropping, which is the largest in the state east coast. One of my last images from Florida before moving north to Canada, back in 2016.
Rolland Breach's Path at dawn
France, July 2018
The Puy Mary is one, if not the, most popular and visited summit in the Cantal’s Mounts, the Massif Central, France. This morning, after a stormy night, I had it all for myself. The sun rises behind the clouds which started to clear. This ridge leads to Rolland Breach also very well known, although not to confound to the breach of the same name (minus one l) in the Pyrenees.
Lachine, Quebec, January 2017
By a sunny but a -10°C day, along the Saint Laurent frozen river, I found this rock Z shape, that is likely a former boat dock, eaten away by the weather.
Everglades, Florida, January 2015
You may not see any alligator on this image, but these Everglades lakes are their home, and they are never far away, always intrigued if not interested by ... you.
Canada, March 2017
These falls are actually the combination of three waterfalls, the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls, at the international border between Canada and USA. The tremendous flow of water, even by minus 10°C, creates a continuous upward spray of water, spreading droplets of water everywhere around.
After the falls
Niagara Falls, Canada, March 2017
The Niagara River, after the three falls of the same name, continues its flow, down to Ontario Lake, a few kilometers away. The sunset lights combined with the falls water spray, and these ice-covered bushes, created this almost ethereal ambiance
Yellowstone, USA, July 2017
After a strong thunderstorm, the sky started to clear up, and the lights of the sunset did its magic. Madison valley turned red and yellow.
Utah, July 2017
Dead tree in Dead Horse Point State Park
The golden hours light was breaking through the heavy clouds this evening, and illuminated this dead tree, landing, alone and bursted amongst the surrounding bushes, in this arid plateau
Grand Teton Range
Wyoming, July 2017
One of the most emblematic mountain range in the USA, within the Grand Teton National Park. This evening, the sunset was a bit shy, but the clouds participated to the mood of the image, and I have been welcomed by this magenta sky, through these stormy clouds.
Mauricie, Quebec, July 2018
Often, after the rain, if the clouds clear, this is when the best light happens. This evening was one of these moments, which gave us the pleasure to watch this peaceful and colorful sunset over lake Gabet, in the Mauricie National Park
La Petite Rhue Valley
France, July 2018
Just after the sunrise, heading down the Puy Mary summit trail, the sun started to poor through the La Petite Rhue valley, on the north mountainside. The road swirls up to the Pas de Peyrol pass
