Immerse in an ECO-Tour and Experience Southwest Florida Islands by Boat

“Captain Brian Holaway is well versed in the intricacies of our unmatched locale. He can guide to and through a multitude of out-of-the way tidal creeks, bayous, keys and islands. More important is his passionate interest and respect for the region. With unique insights from his many explorations and his studies, not only does he identify the birds and wildlife that inhabit our semi-tropical watery land, but he explains their interconnectedness to their environment and each other. In addition, he shares the fascinating history of rugged people who came long before us: Florida Native Indians, the Calusa, the Spanish, the Cubans, early homesteaders, and the wisdom evident in the growth of their culture.

You will come away with great enjoyment and a new understanding of this beautiful place and its history.”

Introducing Wonders Of The Sea By Karen Robertson and Photographer Brian Holaway

This month Karen finds herself at her favorite Florida Gulf Coast habitat, Captiva Island, where she explores remote unspoiled beaches, accessible only by boat, with guide, photographer and master naturalist, Captain Brian Holaway. For a memorable experience of discovery.

1.5 - 3 Million Years Old Shell Fossils

Karen uncovers and acquires one of the largest known and conditioned Florida seashell fossil collections. Encompassing thousands of shells, this most rare and valuable collection will be offered as new framed and table-top artworks for all to treasure and display as home decor.

The above is from Karen Robertson's newsletter. Karen is an award winning designer who loves the sea. I spent last week with Karen photographing her in the out islands.  I am excited to have taken the above photo for this newly designed picture called "Wonders Of The Sea" designed by Karen Robertson. She is lovely to work with and a creative innovator in the world of marine life. This is part of a fossil shell collection  she acquired recently and will take her months to go through. I am looking forward to seeing more of her fossil collection in her designs in the comming months.
