Florida Potpourii 2016

Turquoise and other beautifully saturated shades at Barefoot Beach. 

I've been to Florida twice since I captured all of these Florida photos...

A gloriously rusty, tripped out Ford in the Everglades. 

Quiet reflection.

A wondrous web.

Corkscrew fog.

Rookery roots.

Corkscrew creatures.

Things found at Crew trails.

Something to crow about in Sarasota. 

Osprey at Barefoot Beach.

Modeling at Rookery Swamp.

Spooning in a ditch.

Poolside color.

Corkscrew critter.

Growing solo.

Swimming at Rookery Swamp.

Little things at Crew trails.

I've heard so many people throughout my life say how much they hate Florida. I just feel sorry for them. Because they don't know where to look. Or are unable to see the forest through the trees.

'A fog view from the bridge' - would be the caption given by me to two of your pictures in this post dominated by a bridge and fog.
The photo with the rusty truck is a powerful one as it reminds us that rust is an evil phenomenon associated with decay and ruin.
I'm stunned by the beauty of the solitary thing growing among a multitude of green flowers? buds? leaves? Thanks for sharing.

As always, your pictures inspire me to look at the world with a different eye. What beauty! And your talent makes me want to head outside with my camera and try my own luck. Just lovely!!! :-)

Wow! These photos are so beautiful! I like the mix of flora and fauna you have presented. I do not give Florida a lot of thought on my travel plans but I think that would have to change. #TPThursday

Gorgeous! I especially like the umbrellas, and spent time really studying the crow. Such detail and so expressive. Good job!

Great photos, especially the one of the roots reflected in the water and the closeup of the rusty Ford truck. I like that you make even every items like a pile of pool noodles look so interesting. Florida isn't boring at all through your eyes.

Great pictures - i'd love to see some racoons one day. And I really like the umbrella and pool shots.

Gosh you did such a good job photographing the spiders web - I always find that difficult. The pool noodles are so crisp clear and colourful also.
