Travel & Nature Photojournalism

Before the bleakness of Midwest Winter set in, we were lucky to enjoy a mild, long weekend getaway on Sanibel Island. As our Missouri temperatures continue to dwindle towards negative numbers, I am missing the warmth of Florida! I hope you will enjoy this sequence of images taken earlier in December.

Point Ybel illuminates a path for passing boats and distant ships.

It is always such a pleasure to visit Sanibel.
Wishing you warmth and a very Happy New Year!
