Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/50s, f/4, ISO 200, focal length 9.2mm; AUTO setting

A late afternoon view through a window in a restaurant, The Blackwater Inn, on the St. Johns River in Astor, Florida, U.S.A. All I had to do was turn around in my chair. (Slightly cropped)

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.

    Spent many days on the St.Johns River. My Uncle had a beautiful house on the St. Johns. Great mullet fishing. This brings back great memories.

  • We went on a luncheon cruise on the St. Johns River once when we first moved to Florida. I’d like to do that again…it was fun.
