Naples Pier

Welcome back to Cathy Kelly’s photography blog after a brief interruption during which I needed to care for my Australian Shepherd, who fell ill suddenly. (Happy to say she is making a courageous comeback.) We are going to take a short detour from the tour of marketplaces in Asia, but I promise to resume the Asian tour in a few weeks. This detour brings us to Naples, Florida in April 2013 — where the nature and wildlife can easily draw a photographer’s attention and keep her busy. Naples is located in SW Florida on the Gulf of Mexico. All you can find further south of Naples is the Everglades — a national park filled with estuaries full of alligators, birds and lots of amazing wildlife. Even though Naples caters to Snowbirds (Adults from the colder climates of the NE and Midwest looking for warm, sunny weather) and vacationers with a fabulous array of shops and restaurants, Naples offers so much in the Nature department. First and foremost, a visitor can enjoy a glorious sunset just about every evening. Imagine a large orange orb plunging into the Gulf waters…

Today, I will share with you views of the Gulf and beach from the historic Naples Pier — the place where visitors arrived by boat earlier in the century. Today it is a popular place to watch the sun set and the moon rise and to feel the wind in your hair. Both of these photographs look southeast back toward the shore at dusk. I find serenity here.
