What I have been up to.

This past week I visited Key Vista Park.  It is part of the Pasco County Park system.  What I like about this park is that it has an usual terrain than most of the surrounding area. The park is situated on a bluff adjacent to Sand Bay, with Rocky Creek bordering it on the north. Ancolte Key can be seen from the beach area.   It reminds me of California.

On this trip I took my time and concentrated on the woods and fallen trees.  A tripod allowed for a more studied approach to shooting.

This tree had been cut by park crews after it had fallen.  Its position in relation to other downed tree created lines that were interesting.  A feature in the Photoshop CS5 mimics the HDR effect.

Key Vista Park is forested and there is a sign on the bulletin board advising anyone encountering a black bear to call the park service.

Rocky creek has a lagoon and that day I arrived at low tide.

Though I was only there for a short time, it was great photographing this beautiful park.

“Inspiration for my art is found in the natural world. Being in the midst of nature is a tranquil and revitalizing experience. Early morning and late afternoon light paints the landscape with a soft glow, fog and mist create an air of mystery. Sunbeams streaming through the tree branches craft portals of mystic radiance. Reflections on lakes and streams produce a picturesque spectacle. Using the camera as a paintbrush, I attempt to recreate these visual sensations and share them with others. My mission is to share a love of the earth and a desire to protect it.”
