I travel to Florida on a regular basis to photograph birds. I discovered these Viera Wetlands several years ago and have been basing myself, at least part of the time, in Cocoa Beach so that I can run over to the wetlands for sunrises and sunsets...and a bunch of photography in between. It's really an awesome place...one of my all time favorites....with wildlife galore...up close and personal. I think it's probably several hundred acres that are divided into cells. It's claim to fame was that the entire wetlands were accessible by vehicle by driving on the berms that separate the cells. I've had so many incredible photographic experiences and I've met so many other awesome photographers in there. But unfortunately, it now seems to be a rare occasion when vehicles are allowed to drive into the wetlands. I get out and walk it .... but I can't carry all the cameras, tripods, binoculars, etc. around. Plus, there is no shelter to run to to protect cameras should a storm come up. The past several times I was there....I met no other photographers...just a couple of people getting their exercise...and then they were all up at the front. It's really a shame.
