Skywatch Friday, Tropical Sunset



Strolling about my IL’s development I was busy looking for a presentable Florida Sunset shot. Trying to remain somewhat true to my blog name I did not want to show the multitudes of houses which grace the streets.

By aiming a little high and using a 105mm lens I was able to exclude the dwellings and with a F10 I obtained enough DOF for pleasing results.

How delicate the palms look through your lens. I've been looking at the other pictures too. I'm a Floridian, about an hour from Lakeland. I love LOVE the heron picture. Great!

And I see you've changed your banner again - I like it.

I like what you did there, Dad.

...Yeah, I thought the wood stork pic just worked best in color after all ;)

I forgot to mention that I liked your customized banner. Very Crocodile Dundee :)

You certainly do have variety on me when it comes to the birds!

I would never have guessed that your Skywatch shot was taken in a subdivision, looks very "deserted island".
