Yes it is.... I took it while in the out back of Florida just last week.
I didn't walk about the brush-lands very long. I'm not familiar with the kinds of poisonous snakes and critters that frequent the area..
nor where their hospitals would be. In Michigan.....There's NOTHING poisonous to worry about.

It was like I was a part of it. It was the best feeling in the world. It opens up to a whole new way of looking at things through the art of photography.
~smile~ Good for you...pleasing yourself is the best! ...and it sounds like you view it as a breakthrough.

Ewww. Maybe that's why I don't like fish much. SF does, which is why I noticed the festival.

Giving one the feeling of being there..... looking out.
Nice shot Hava! I love finding just that spot to frame a marsh view, peeking through the trees. As you say it can suck you right in when done well.

It's a very pretty scene, and I agree that the way the dry palm fronds frame it is quite nice.

Hi all,
Here are a few from a walk near my house on the 3rd. The first is a little nest that I noticed about ten feet off the path. I took several pictures of it and for some reason I really like this one. Of course, as low to the ground as it is, it's probably under the snow now.
The second is a fungus I found. I was surprised to see one this late that wasn't a shelf fungus. Of course, my knowledge of fungi is quite limited even though I've taken many, many pictures of them over the years. Though I don't know the name of this one, I do know that I like how the composition turned out so I thought I'd share it with y'all.

Nice shroom, Bulu!

Well framed, hava!

bridget, where we are, the Osprey are just entering nesting season, and I think they are so focused they don't get distracted easily~

Two fine additions, Bulu.

I especially like the nest...there is always something mildly thrilling about finding one.

I like the mushroom Buluc. It has motion.
The lay of the snow, the curl of the leaf and tree itself draws you into various areas of the photo.
