Florida is known as the place where shuttles launched into space. But the view from the ground is pretty nifty, too.
Mark Andrew Thomas is a Florida-based wildlife photographer who grew up near the Everglades, a tropical wilderness of varied ecosystems fed by a slow-moving “river of grass” some 60 miles wide. His latest project is a lineup of crystal-clear images that make his surrogate backyard look downright otherworldly.
“It’s the place where I feel the most centered, the place I go to when life’s stresses and problems seem overwhelming,” Thomas wrote in a description of his photos. “It’s where I go to think and decompress.”
We’d feel pretty calm here, too.
