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.

See You Later Alligator


The Everglades is the only place in the world where you can find both alligators AND crocodiles…


Blue Skies and Dragonflies


Glades of Glory


Spirit of the Alligator


The sun sets in the Everglades here. So I could hardly believe what I was seeing when this massive gator head appeared one night! I can only imagine what the Seminoles would have thought if the gods presented something like this to them years ago.

One of my personal favorites…


Traffic in the Everglades


I watch the news when I get ready for work in the morning. This morning’s traffic report included something I haven’t seen yet. A road was backed up because an alligator made his way on to it, blocking one of the lanes. Unfortunately someone ran over the poor guy and he has to be put down. Gator blocks traffic
