Last Shot Before the Rain – Whiskey Creek

The mangrove swamps of Whiskey Creek, in Mizell-Johnson State Park, look ominous as a storm approaches.

This is a photograph of Whiskey Creek, in Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park, Florida. When I thought the storms had finished for the day, I set out to explore the mangroves. But it soon became clear that there was one last storm in store. I listened to crescendo of thunder signal that it get closer and closer. Eventually a loud thunder clap told me it was finally time to pack up and get out of the water. I then proceeded to do something I do far too often: convince myself it’s time to go, pack up my gear, only to unpack it twenty feet later for that one last shot. I think this probably happens to most photographers, because the changing light from the nearing storm creates new scenes that weren’t there on the way in. This was one such scene, with the ominous clouds reflecting in the water, which itself was starting to get restless from the increasing drops of rainfall.
