Snoozing

Last Wednesday I went to Homosassa Springs State Park about a half hour or so from the ol' homestead.  

I was at this same park the early part of last year but I had just gotten my new camera and wasn't quite sure what I was doing.  I've been wanting to go back to the park to see if I could get some better shots.  It was a cloudy day with mixed with some rain and a rather large thunderstorm.  A perfect day for taking some photos!  

495 photos later... I ended up with quite a few that I like but still have so much more to learn.

This is one of my favorites!


I'll be sharing some more of my favorites with you throughout the week.



Till next time,

What a lovely flamingo shot! I love, love, love this park. Always lots to photograph there. When my daughter and I visit a dear friend in Springhill we always take a day to visit this beautiful park.

Love your shot! Sorry I been so quiet these last couple weeks, I’ve been really ill (now finally diagnosed with Whooping Cough) and have had a very rough week. Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #31.

That's a wonderful shot!

You sound like me, with your hundreds of shots--I take way too many photos but it gives me the chance to see what I do right or wrong.
