Waves from Hurricane Sandy
It’s hard to see from this picture, but the waves were higher than the pier.It’s usually pretty flat here. Wishing our friends up north a safe ride through the storm.
The Endless Summer
Now that Labor Day is over, it is the “unofficial end of Summer” for most of you. Here in Florida it goes year round though. So when you need a break from Oldman Winter, remember that Florida’s just a plane ride away…
Dark & Light
Today is the 20 year anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, and with Tropical Storm Isaac expected to hit parts of Florida this Sunday, I thought this photo of an incoming storm in the Keys seemed fitting for today’s pic. It’s amazing how quickly the weather can change here, as you can see from the contrast of the darkness on the left, to the pure white sky on the right of the photo.
This is my 100TH POST since starting this photo blog back on April 15th of this year. I try to post something once a day, but that can be easier said than done sometimes.
I started this as a “hey, this is awesome, you should see it too” site, but I’ve noticed it’s attracted a variety of fans like “snow bird” northerners, hopeful tourists, former Floridians, nature lovers, photographers, fellow SCUBA divers and ocean lovers alike. It’s always fun to read everyone’s comments and see what everyone “likes”. So please continue to do so and spread the word about this site if you know someone who might appreciate it the way you do. Above all, thank you supporting Beauty of Florida!
This photo is from Fort Lauderdale’s 100 year anniversary last year. They had this giant “100” set up by the beach directly across from the world famous Elbow Room.
Florida’s take on feeling blue.. On a side note, I’ve updated all my previous images so you can click on them to see them full size.

I’ve found there’s just as much beauty below the sea as there is above it.
