Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

  • Thank you, Di. This is the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico along the northwest part of Florida (called the “panhandle” of Florida). The color of the water is similar to that in the Caribbean. I could look at it forever, but our vacation was only for three days.

    Cool capture!! :D :D

  • Thanks, Cee. We were lucky to have a broad view of the Gulf of Mexico from our sixth floor hotel balcony. This shot was taken lower from the deck around the pools. The sand is like white powder and the color of the water is wonderful.
