I’m working on a project of Florida springs, which I can’t wait to share, but at Wekiva I was met with inclement weather, and a spring that was highly developed in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. So this post contains not the spring, but the natural beauty of the land around the spring. I’m grateful that land so close to Orlando was protected for the beauty and enjoyment of all.
what a lovely place…
Superb shots! 🙂
Wonderful! Can’t wait to hear about your project…you’re just an hour away from me!
Really Mrs P, well we should grab a coffee and tell stories sometime
How long will you be there? My schedule is pretty full but I could squeeze time in this weekend or the first weekend in March…then I’m busy until April. 😀
I’m actually near the coast, a little town called Scottsmoor through mid-April
Even better…that’s closer! I’ll email you and we can figure out a good time.
Gorgeous as always Russ. I just love how you capture nature.
Thanks Nicole, travel on traveling family…
So relatively little of Florida’s natural habitat has been set aside, protected from development, it’s nice to see this little slice of it. Looks like they’ve done a controlled burn? I esp. love the shot of grasses and trees.
Yes, a controlled burn, if only we could have seen this state in the 1600’s
I think that of most of the US. When I fly coast to coast, looking down, there is very little that doesn’t have the stamp of man upon it.
Almost the entire Western US is federally owned land, when you look into it, it’s just that not enough of it is pure wilderness. Even if someone does not step into the wilderness, it’s important they know that it exists. It’s good for the human spirit.
Very nice pics!
Brilliant shots, Russ. This is a part of Florida unbeknown to me.
Warm greetings from Norway,
Thanks Dina, I’m enjoying visiting these less-known places. The interior of Florida is full of magic.
So Beautiful! Thanks for showing me a glimpse through your eyes, A different side of Florida rather than what I see on T.v. Hello From California!
Hey California! Thanks, it really is nice to introduce people to “the real Florida.”
Absolutely beautiful, thank you for both taking these and sharing them. =)
I love the photo of the deer and how it’s so sharp even with the grass causing an obstruction, great picture!
