We’ve been having a lot of fun with the new cameras so much so that we haven’t had a whole lot of time for blogging or sharing. Today is kind of grey and blah outside so there’s no excuse not to share some of our latest efforts with you. We took a trip to Tomoka State Park recently where the 100% humidity provided a gorgeous foggy morning. There’s something about fog that mutes all sounds and gives this great feeling of tranquility while it transforms the landscape with veil of mist. Beautiful for photography. Communing with nature at its finest.

We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed taking them. A bit of a mixed bag – some in muted color and some monochromatic.
Have a great week 🙂 .
We went out this morning with every intention of getting some shots of our highly elusive deer and wild hog. The animals had other ideas or other plans, who knows. They definitely didn’t show. We sat for about an hour in one place with no luck whatsoever, not even an armadillo wanting to pose. However, when you’re out in a beautiful natural setting like Bulow Woods it’s never a wasted trip. Here are few from today’s outing, some in black and white and some in color. Some of us and some of the gorgeous wildness around us.

Thank goodness for waterproof boots
We’ve been practicing wih the cameras for a few weeks now and both of us honestly agree there’s a huge difference between digital and film photography. We’re discovering something new every time we use the cameras. Bulow Woods has several hiking trails that take you through a variety of wonderful Florida nature. There’s always the chance of spotting deer, wild hog, armadillo and many bird species. With the recent rains the past few months various parts are flooded but good waterproof snake boots make that a non issue for us. We seldom stick to the trails and found one of our favorite swamps nice and wet. Once again those waterproof boots came in handy. Here’s a selection from our trip yesterday to Bulow Woods from both of us.
