Photographing the Drowned Forest of the Ocklawaha by Kayak

Dawn at the Orange Springs boat ramp on the drawn down Ocklawaha River

I scoured the drowned forest for the compositions etched into my mind these last weeks. I’ve studied these trees in my dreams, I’ve watched the light illuminate their texture, I’ve seen the shadows in their shape. I was here to photograph these trees, to find their stories that have been stuck in the thickening mud of this lost place.
