Bald Cypress

This time of year the bald cypress  trees reside at the edges of ponds in The Villages turn brown.  They’ll be back to green come spring.

The Best Place on a Sunny Day

Indiana Barns

A trip to Indiana just wouldn’t be complete without a afternoon out photographing old, abandoned barns. This one really caught my eye because it was sitting in a field of wild mustard.


I had to walk a little bit into a plowed up corn field (after asking permission from the farm owner, of course) to get close enough to this vine-covered corn crib.


Last week I checked out the Kanapaha Botanical Garden in Gainesville.  The place has lots of different flowers, a large herb garden and the state’s largest display of bamboo.  We’re talking tall, tall, massive growths of bamboo!  This photo, to which I added a painterly look, doesn’t really emphasize how tall the bamboo plant in the background is.  (I needed a human to stand beneath it) but envision a person walking beneath the trellis on the right to get an idea.




Standing close and looking up!



Just standing close!

Walking through the bamboo groves was sort of eerie, especially with the wind creating a soft rattling sound overhead.

Well, that did a lot of good.

Taking The Tour


Boat on The Lake

Sure is fun to take my photos and turn them into paintings.  This is at Lake Sumtner Landing in The Villages.
