Florida’s Fall Foliage


This was taken on Thanksgiving day at Anne Kolb Nature Center. What’s that..? You can’t see the Fall foliage? Check out the picture I took here last Spring here –Anne Kolb Nature Center

Where I’d like to be


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…


The Road Less Paddled

One Hundred


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.

The Lonely Mangrove


Always and For Everglades

Before moving to Florida I used to think, “why would anyone ever want to go to the Everglades? It’s nothing but alligators and mosquitoes.” Boy was I wrong! I fell in love with it the first time I was out there. I couldn’t believe how much life was everywhere I looked…birds, flowers, fish, trees, turtles, all so healthy and full of life. It’s an incredible ecosystem everyone should see.
