Local Park Landscapes

Just a short post today with an idea for local photo-ops:  How about the parks in your own neighborhood?

I wanted to try out the D7000 on some landscape photos, but didn’t really have time to go anywhere special.  Instead, I went out to three local parks and made the photos below.

You’ve seen this tree before – it’s along the shore of Lake Jesup in Central Winds Park.    I like this more complete composition, since it includes the cyprus knees.

This next one was made at Lake Marie in Trotwood Park.  There are almost always at least a few birds in this small lake and last night was no exception.

And finally, here’s one from this morning at Sam Smith Park.  It was very quiet – almost no wind, which helps wonderfully with reflections in water. The cyprus trees here in Florida do change colors for the winter – the one on the left is starting to turn.

Visit your local parks and make some photos.
