A photographic journey showcasing the beauty that Florida has to offer.

Sunrise Surprise

I often post the sunsets I see each night from my back balcony. This is what I see out my front door each morning.

Sparse Clouds

Heavy Eyelids

A Drive to the Islands

A Distant Fire

Where I’d like to be

Pink Water

Man, Woman, & Child

Dueling Sunsets

Go with the Grain

Balance of Sun

The chaos of soon to be Hurricane Isaac has finally died down tonight. After another day of high winds, heavy rain and flash flood warnings from the National Weather Service, paradise has finally been restored for South Florida.

Soft Set

African Dust

Every year, dust from the Sahara Desert blows thousands of miles across the ocean and fills the Florida sky. This is a photo of what it looked like this year. Read more about it here.

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.
