A boardwalk through the Freedom Park not only provides a chance for healthy outdoor exercise, but a chance to visualize "Old Florida Swamp" before the human population explosion. Though the audible signs of traffic nearby are heard, the chirping of birds and the rustling through the undergrowth can overcome those alien sounds. The visions can entirely mask the man-made intrusions with a little focus. This photo was post-processed with a black and white effect in the style of Clyde Butcher. (Color original)

Other images from today's walk include the stately wood stork, red vine , cypress knee , and another swampy scene. Freedom Park, Naples, FL


  1. Black and white works very well for this picture.

    Hope you enjoyed your trip?

  2. Was just going to comment on the good use of b&w.
