Everglades Gumbo Limbo Trail
Photograph - Fine Art Photograph
This image was captured with a pinhole camera with a 6 x 17 mm negative size film. A pinhole camera has no lens, no viewfinder, and no light meter, and no electronics. Just a hole in a box. The exposure was 14 seconds. The image is an extreme wide-angle. About 6 mm on a full-frame digital camera (or 35mm)
The Everglades National Park is a subtle place where earth, water, and sky blend in a low green landscape; where mere inches of elevation produce distinct changes in vegetation; and where a great wealth of birds and other wildlife find refuge. For this is almost exclusively a biological park dedicated to the preservation of a complex and precisely ordered living mechanism. It lies at the interface between temperate and sub-tropical America, giving a rich diversity of species, many at the limit of their ranges.
With its special significance to the Nation and the world recognized by making the Everglades a National Park, National Wilderness Preservation area (for the most part), an International Biosphere Reserve, a World Heritage Site, and a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance, its preservation for the benefit of present and future generations is better assured. It is the only park on the planet with 5 designations.
