16 Stunning Snapshots Of South Florida, From Flamingo Feathers And Banyan Trees To Sunrises And Sea Turtles

In South Florida, we’re lucky to witness sea turtle releases, to see the wind tousle the leaves on the towering branches of Banyan trees and to watch the sunrise next to a misty pier. In this photo essay, we prove that South Florida is a natural, breathtaking paradise. Here’s your chance to soak it all in.

We asked readers to submit their favorite photos for a chance to be featured in our November issue. We received more than 100 stunning submissions, and now we present the best of the best.
