sand and sun…

I decided it is time for a bit of sand and sun…since I can’t photograph the sand here I will rely on photos I took in the last few winters…when I go to Florida I generally don’t stay in a condo/house on the beach, for one far to expensive for my liking and Key west generally doesn’t have condos on the beach…across the street or close by but we like to be able to walk everywhere so find it better to stay close to Duval Street…as a result I don’t have a great many beach photos…should have many this winter as my daughter and I will be staying in Marco Islands in a condo on the beach in January…the first for me in many years.

looking for heat…

today is one of those days when I’m thinking of Florida…so I’m posting three photos from there…

this is one of the beaches at Naples, at the end of 5th Avenue…there was a person laying on the sand that was rather close so I used the cloning brush and brushed him out…kind of a cool process…this was my first attempt…I think it is rather visible but I’m sure my technique will improve over time…Naples 2012this is the same beach but if you look way down on the right you will see the white of the condos/high rises farther down…again I used the cloning tool to eliminate a body I didn’t want in the photo…very nice beach and not busy at all!!!Naples 20122sa US Navel ship docked at Fort Zachary, Key West…US Navel Ship docked at Fort Zachary key west


summer photos in honour of the snow!

I’m late again today…we had at least 10 inches of snow Friday over night and we are expected to have close to the same again tonight!  Ok…I really think it is time for someone else to take a turn…seriously, I won’t mind…  😉

In honour of all that snow I’m posting summer photos…5th ave. naples 2012above is a small view of a few of the great shops on 5th Ave., Naples, this was early in the morning when it wasn’t busy… Callander Bay, 2010this photo is of Callander Bay, east end of Lake Nipissing(approx. 3 kilometres in diameter) but something I’ve not shown before as I don’t have many photos of this area…I will have to take more as it really is very lovely, more so in the summer! drive to key west. 2012above is on the drive to key west…coming up to a abridge, not sure if it is the long bridge  or not…excuse the antenna…
