"No matter how much you plan, getting a good shot is never a guarantee," said Lik. "The weather conditions in the Keys were brutal, with intense lightning and thunderstorms. Mother Nature truly was working against me on this one and I almost gave up on the shot. Just when I thought the dream was over – there it was. The skies began to clear and the water grew still – I could feel my spirit relax as I took in this perfect paradise."
"Midsummer Dream" was captured with a Nikon D800E. The photo is a sequel to Lik's "Tranquil Blue" and can be seen in all 15 LIK Galleries across the United States.

About Peter Lik
Peter Lik began capturing the wonders of nature as a young boy in his native Australia and never stopped. In 1984, Lik migrated to the U.S. and discovered his passion for panoramic photography. One of Lik's most notable projects, "Spirit of America," is a 50-state landscape exploration of perilous deserts, ethereal mountain peaks, lush fields and glimmering cityscapes. Peter Lik's love for America and its landscapes led him to become a naturalized citizen in 2013. Over the years, Lik's career has been marked with award wins as a Master Photographer from both the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and Professional Photographers of America (PPA). He has also been awarded fellowships from the British Institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP) and The Royal Photographic Society (RPS). In 2011, Peter jumped into mainstream culture by starring in the NBC-produced TV series, "From the Edge with Peter Lik." Lik has 15 Galleries across the United States and his masterworks "Ghost" and "Inner Peace" have been included in exhibitions of Nature's Best Photography at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. In 2015, Peter was honored at PPA's Imaging USA with a Lifetime Achievement Award. He is one of only 13 recipients in history to receive this honor.
