Over the past few weeks I’ve spent most mornings filming in and around the amazing area known as Sweetwater Strand in Big Cypress National Preserve. Strand swamps are long narrow swamps, typically with an area of deeper water in the middle. Sweetwater Strand in particular is one of my favorite locations along Big Cypress National Preserve’s Loop Road. Not only is it one of the most scenic locations in the park, it is also a hive of activity both during the day and at night. Take a few moments to watch this latest film in the Nature Profiles series, Dawn in Sweetwater Strand, to learn more about the transition from night to day in this amazing location.
On a technical note, this is the first of the Nature Profiles films to be shot entirely in 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD). Due to limited internet access and bandwidth constraints, I am unable to upload the high resolution version at this time. I’ll update this post when I have posted that version. In the meantime, enjoy it in full high definition!
