This is our residents park along the Rainbow River in Dunnellon, Florida. It’s always a treat to go there and enjoy the scenery, the beautiful water, and some wonderful wildlife.

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.

  • It really is a peaceful little river, except on a hot weekend in the summer when there are too many people tubing and kayaking! Thank you, and you have a great weekend, too!
