19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
A night at the Gulf of Mexico, in Naples, Florida.

We drove for the first time to the Gulf of Mexico. This image was taken at 1 am on a Saturday night. The quiet and calm led to a beautiful night by the Gulf. It was a surreal experience. To get there we drove through the Everglades, and arrived in Naples Florida, a town out of a fairy tale. It was quiet, picturesque, clean, beautiful, and everyone was nice and caring. I will most definitely visit there again.
