Miami and Mangroves – City and Wilderness

Purchase Image Download:

The modern Miami Skyline is seen at sunset from behind the wild mangrove forests of Bear Cut Preserve.

Bear Cut is one of my favorite places to photograph in South Florida. It's one of the most wild, pristine places in the immediate proximity of Miami. There's a surprisingly wide variety of natural beauty: dense mangrove forests, tidal flats, fossilized reefs, natural coastline, and more. And it's right at the tip of Key Biscayne, so it's one of those rare places where you can see both sunset and sunrise. But perhaps the most surprising thing about it is the great view of the modern downtown skyline. From here, the modern sky-scrapers glimmer in both the morning and evening light, and stand in beautiful contrast to the natural landscape of the park. The mangroves provide the perfect frame to remind you that Miami is replete with wilderness just a stone's throw away.
