It seems that these days I'm sorely lacking in any really good photos to post. I've resorted to posting some that I'm sure I posted on another no longer existing blog but since some of you have never seen these I thought why not. All of the photos were taken in Wimauma, Florida. A place I dearly love. It didn't start out that way, mind you. I was excited about moving there but I was terribly home sick and it took almost six months for me to adjust. Once I did I loved it there. We no longer live there but I have a small collection of nice photos to remember it by. Or at least I think they're nice.
If I remember correctly the first two photos were taken on the same day. The above photo of the storm as it rolled in - I love storms. I know that may sound ridiculous but I do. They are so moody and I love how everything turns a unique shade of yellowy green and the leaves and grass stand out like a beautiful sore thumb against the dark clouds.
This photo is after the rain fell and the storm had passed. The land behind the fence is a Muck Pond. It's protected wet lands (maybe I should say "area"). Anyway, it's not allowed to be mowed or cut in anyway. Wild birds such as Herons, Egrets, Storks, Flamingos, ducks... visit and when they do it's so exciting. I would always run out camera in hand and try to get as close as I could to get some shots before they noticed me and took off. I would not make a great spy. They'd hear and see me coming a mile away. Unfortunately there are no birds in this photo. There is however, a white egret/heron in the photo above off to your left.
This is the first photo I took of rain drops dripping off of pine tree needles. I was so excited that this photo came out and I think the bokeh is awesome. I love this photo. Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle,...sparkle.
And the last is a shot of a Mockingbird sitting in a tall tree in the back of our property. The day was gorgeous as you can tell. Not a cloud in the sky.
Well, that's all for now. Wishing all of you a wonderful rest of the weekend.
