Stream of consciousness [photos]

Coastal mangrove wetlands are abundant in South Florida. Still, there’s something primal and exotic about looking at their exposed roots and the natural habitat they provide to plenty of organic life. The black wet soil resembles that of an alien world. Whenever I look at these exposed roots, I contemplate the core ethical values that keep me grounded and the curiosity that makes me look up to space. The original, untouched photo was captured at the 1,501-acre Anne Kolb Nature Center in South Florida.
