I finally got out today to do some kayaking on Blue Cypress Lake here in Florida.  It has been windy for several weeks and that makes for a hard time to be out on the water in a kayak.  I enjoy the big skies here in Florida.  Hardly a day goes by without a magnificent sky full of clouds.  The land may be flat but the skies make up for it.  The summer heat is starting and with it comes strong thunderstorms each day.  They usually strike in the mid afternoon after the days heat builds up.  They are a freighting to experience and to be caught out in one could be deadly.  Whenever I am out photographing in the summer I keep a sharp eye out for the changing weather conditions to be certain I can get to safety when the lighting starts.  The cypress tress intrigue me and I find I like them best without there leaves.  They are one of the few trees in Florida that loose their leaves for the winter months. 


  1. Love this one - the clouds are fantastic.
    Well made.

  2. Thanks for your comments. It is one of most recent images from the series of cypress trees. One challenge with landscape photography is dealing an uninteresting sky with a great subject. It is always rewarding to have a dramatic sky to work with in your images.
