Turkey Panoramas

Recently back from a spectacular trip to Turkey. I have about 5000 photos to process and just got through the first batch (iPhone panoramas). Note that the linked images are large and you may have to expand them. Enjoy!   Not really a panorama, but fisheye view of Hagia Sophia!

Santa Fe River Afternoon

I was itching to go kayaking somewhere new, so I headed over to the Santa Fe River. There was a little park and boat launch near the highway 47 bridge. While getting ready to go I spotted what looked like green leaves stuck on the sides of two trees. They turned out to be Luna […]

Everglades Sail Kayak Trip 2016

This was my twentieth trip (!) to the Everglades and as always it was eventful. I was accompanied by my Brother Mark from Sacramento. We headed out on a beautiful day but storm warnings were on the horizon. [Gallery] This map shows our planned four night route and what actually happened! The third day it rained several […]

Everglades Kayak Trip December 2015

Took a short trip, first ever in December. No winter yet, temp in the 80s and therefore lots of bugs. <frown> Half this Photo Gallery is from a day trip on the upper Turner River, which was new territory for me… Our route was Halfway Creek to Crooked Creek Chickee to Watson Place to Jewel Key and out. We saw lots […]

Amelia Island & Fort Clinch State Park

Cows in a Florida Field

On my way to work yesterday. Beautiful animals!

Gum Slough Kayak Trip

Nice little day trip off the Withlacoochee River near Inverness. Lots of recent downed trees midway. Lower portion nice, shady cypress swamp. Upper portion more open, nice trees, flowers, etc. I saw five Swallow-Tailed Kites lazily chasing each other. Took a swim in the head spring. There are actually several springs along the upper creek, big blue holes […]

Mississippi Kites are Back!

Same tree has last year! Amazing!! [Gallery] The second bird flew in and attempted to mate, then flew off… …the entire episode lasted only a few seconds.

Barred Owl Outside My Window

We frequently see and hear Barred Owls (Strix varia) in the trees around our house. Yesterday one decided to take a nap right outside my window! Video is pretty good considering I was shooting tangentially through window glass. [Gallery]

Solo Everglades Kayak Trip 2015

My eighteenth trip and my first solo! I finally made my way around Cape Sable, and explored some new places along the way… [Gallery] I started out at Flamingo, where the marina is split in two by a dam. I put in on the north side and proceeded up the Buttonwood Canal to Coot Bay. From […]
