Sky Watch Friday, Spanish Moss




While visiting Bok Tower with Chad we were both busy searching for and composing shots from around the scenic gardens. I didn’t have Sky Watch in mind when I captured this shot of the sky framed by a tree heavily laden with Spanish Moss.

If you find yourself in the Orlando/Tampa area and have never visited this exquisite garden; allow me to recommend it. Bok Tower offers a beautiful quiet respite from the rush and bustle of the typical tourist trap.

Oh, I love this! It looks like a fairyland. The best shots are taken merely for the beauty of it.

A great Country Capture and a Great Sky Watch Salty... I have enjoyed seeing and reading about Bok on both yours and Chads blog...
Chads post about the Osprey encounter was stunning.. I am not a religious person but found Chads love of his good and his amasement at the encounter a fantastic read. You have a great son there and your fater/son relationship is a joy to see.
Catch up again soon
