Manatees crowd into Three Sisters Spring in Crystal River, Florida to get relief from the cold winter waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The spring remains at 72 deg. all year round, and is a haven for these large water mammals. Canon Powershot sx30IS
A Florida native, I enjoy taking photos of the natural beauty around me. Photography is a wonderful way to preserve the memories of that beauty. My family is also my passion, and I enjoy recording the things we do together. Strictly a hobbyist, I have won a few contests, and have been published within the state several times. Sharing these photos with friends who share theirs with me is a most gratifying and lovely experience.
