Sailing On a Red Sea... Hey, Wait For Me! by

Abstract from the side of a red recycle bin in Citrus County near Dunnellon, Florida. There had been something stapled here, and when it was removed the staples stuck out with what looks like a bit of the white paper, and when the sun lit it from above, sail-like shadows were formed. When I turned the image upside down, I discovered these sailboats.

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.
