Everglades Sunrise / by Dennis Bernhard

Everglades Sunrise

This photo was taken on the second day of my trip to the Everglades and Keys. This photo was taken at the campground lake in Everglades National Park. I drove in the night before, slept at the campgrounds near the lake and staked my spot super early.  

I was a little concerned that the sunrise wouldn't be able to break through the cloud cover, but instead the clouds helped to make the sunrise explode across the sky and last a lot longer than most sunrises. 

The mix of bright orange and deep purple was mesmerizing to me. So much so that I didn't even mind getting eaten alive by mosquitos to sit there and watch it. The colors came in waves, ebbing and flowing as the clouds moved across the sky.  

What's your favorite place in Everglades National Park?
