To be honest, I have grown tired of looking at sun-over-water
photographs. There are so many of them and they are all so similar. I
have already found some of Flickr's best, but how many photographs of
rolling waves or serene Gulf with the sun behind them does one site
But then I saw this, illustrating how in Florida nature regularly transforms even the most workaday commercial landscape. I love the watery effect of the sun behind the mist and the even waterier (well, naturally) effect of the reflection. I love the pastel tints infusing the urban landscape. Look how you can see the city's towers in the distance.
What you have to remember about Florida is that everything single thing here is beautiful at the right time of day. You just have to find that right time. Is that true everywhere else? Maybe. It's only since moving here that I've noticed it.
