Only In Sarasota

By Brian David Braun June 1, 2011

Sarasota is famous for gorgeous beaches, but our vast inland forests are just as beautiful, as this image by Brian David Braun reveals. After a controlled burn in Myakka State Forest, Braun, who lives nearby ("A Florida panther comes right into our yard"), staked out a spot by this pond, hoping that the lingering smoke and early-morning fog would catch the first shafts of light. "It’s one of my favorite photos ever," he says.
