Hi all! This is my first post outside of the "beginners" section of the forum. Feel free to tear into me as you would with any pro. I'm eager to learn and all of your comments are greatly appreciated. Here are some photos I shot while camping out on The Dry Tortugas for Valentine's Day weekend. First off, let me just say that it is rare to have thick fog down here in south Florida. We hardly ever get any fog, much less heavy fog. The Dry Tortugas, if you guys don't know where it is, is 70 miles west of Key West and 95 miles north of Cuba. If anyone gets a chance to go, I highly recommend it. It is serene, great for snorkeling, and has lots of history behind it. It's a small group of islands that is home to Fort Jefferson, a military post for the Union soldiers back during the Civil War. It was also where Dr. Samuel Mudd, the doctor who aided John Wilkes Booth with his broken leg, was sentenced to spend the rest of his life at. Anyway, it was my first time there, and I got to witness something amazing. The thick fog was beautiful and creepy all at once. It made for some great pictures. Here are some of them: #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 The other really cool thing I learned from my tour of the fort at The Dry Tortugas is that, because of its proximity to Cuba, HUNDREDS of cuban immigrants make landfall there every year in boats, rafts and just about anything that floats! They had one of the boats/raft there on display...and I use the term "boat" VERY loosley. I mean, these things are a mess. It's a miracle that these folks make it over. The last pic is a close-up of some stitching found on the boat. #8 #9 -Jose S.
