Hi Theresa. I have spent countless days fishing the backcountry of the Florida Everglades, including Everglades National Park and Biscayne National Park. I was a fly fishing guide for a while, but most of my time in the Everglades was by myself or with friends. As a Miami native interested in all things wild, the Everglades and Biscayne Bay were my playgrounds. The type of fishing I do is called backcountry sight fishing. Basically, I stand on top of a poling platform poling my way through very shallow water looking for fish. It's a lot like hunting on land. I release almost all of my fish these days unharmed. It's all about the journey.
I am fishing less these days and spending most of my time as a nature photographer. The photograph you are interested in, is of one of my camps on Cedar Mesa. Cedar Mesa is in southeastern Utah, and one of my favorite places to camp and explore and photograph old indian ruins. These are not developed campgrounds but just places in the national forest and on BLM land that I find through exploration or word of mouth. No fees and no services, way off the grid. Here is one of the ruins behind this camp. As you can see, it is very photogenic. It was made by the Anasazi Indians about 950 years ago to store grain and as an outpost camp.
