I photographed these two ladies sitting on a bench enjoying the Rainbow Springs State Park in Dunnellon, Florida on a warm sunny day in March. Azaleas of many different colors were in full bloom. My imitation of Monet!

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 so much, Gena. As beautiful as the scene was, the photo needed a little help, hence the impressionistic look.
