Kirk Ragoonath's "Gator": MeFOTO Instagram Weekly Winner

  by MeFOTO Blog       Category Travel Photography, nature photography, Wildlife Photography       Tags American Alligator, Florida Everglades, MeFOTO Instagram Giveaway, Instagram giveaway

Stretching from just south of Orlando all the way to Florida Bay, the Florida Everglades is a tropical wetlands covering more than 734 square miles. Kirk Rangoonath, our SideKick360 winner for 11/14/14, has spent years capturing the beauty of this unique ecosystem.

"If you ever get to visit the Florida Everglades, the first thing you will probably notice is the abundance of American Alligators. I have taken quite a few alligator pics over the years, but I really liked how this image turned out with the lack of wind and low light conditions. I usually shoot in direct sunlight, so I really wasn't sure how the image would come out. In this case, it seems to have worked out well. Learning everyday with every shot! This image was taken in Big Cypress National Preserve on a beautiful late afternoon." - Kirk

Jesse Chinchar's "Leap": MeFOTO Instagram Weekly Winner

It's not necessary to travel to exotic locations to capture rewarding images, but it sure can be fun! SideKick360 winner, Jesse Chinchar, brings us this amusing vacation momento all the way from South Africa.

"In Cape Town, South Africa, it's often nothing but clouds and rain, but today the sun came out, so I ventured up Lion's Head mountain where I took this shot. In the background, you see two mountain ranges: the famous Table Mountain to the left and the Twelve Apostles to the right. From the top of this mountain, you can see beautiful views 360 degrees around. It's one of the many places that make this city so beautiful.

In order to get this shot, I set my camera on a timer and jumped off the rock you see behind me.... It took far too many shots to get it right, including putting on my sunglasses so it didn't matter that I kept closing my eyes!  But I liked the result!" - Jesse
