A lone dead tree in a field in Dunnellon, Florida. This beautiful tree seems to be standing watch over the field.

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.

    Even more defined in black and white. Lovely work, Dot!

  • Thank you so much, Judy. This shot is at a slightly different angle, taken from just a few more feet up the road. I have them both in color and in b/w, and it was hard to decide which to put up. The sky decided for me…this was the better sky in b/w.
