Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

My "straight out of the camera" photo was taken recently at the Kraft Azalea Garden in Winter Park, Florida, which borders Lake Maitland. I stood on the small dock to take this photo of a Spanish Moss tree that stands on the water's edge.

  1. Kathleen - What a gorgeous 'photo! Thanks for sharing it : ). I hope you had a terrific visit.

  2. Hi Margot,
    Thanks ~ and yes, we did have a great visit, even though it rained a lot during our vacation. We got lucky this day (even though it rained on the way!) when we visited Winter Park. We stopped and had lunch at a great Italian restaurant called Pannullo's The service was fantastic and the food delicious and reasonable. I'll have to do a My Town Monday post on Winter Park!

  3. Thanks, Ashley! You have a gorgeous blog...your photos are breathtaking! Thanks for stopping by, too :-)

  4. Sure looks like a scene from down here in N'Awlins. Course, the environments aren't that different. Lovely pic.

  5. Thanks, Charles! We took lots of photos in that park. A tourist boat operates around that lake. Someone was taking in their lunch hour sitting on the dock with an iPod and a book when I took the photo. A gorgeous setting to do just that!

  6. What a great photo. It looks so peaceful.

  7. We don't have Spanish Moss, here in CA. Thanks for the lovely photo and for joining in, today.

  8. Hi Mason,
    That's the perfect word to describe it ~ peaceful! Thanks for stopping by today!

    Hi Jan,
    It was a pleasure to join in, thanks again for hosting this lovely meme ~ I hope you are able to continue doing so ~ I know many people appreciate it ~ including me!
    I was surprised to see the Spanish Moss trees in Florida. I expected them when I visited Savannah last year, but not Florida.

  9. Gorgeous! We're going to Florida this year and I'm on the lookout for scenes like this. It's so amazing and inspires creativity!


  10. Hi Mercedes,
    Thanks for stopping by. I think you will enjoy Florida tremendously. I'm sorry I didn't get to see you in Vegas, it went by so quickly ~ I was visiting my father & his wife, and my sister flew in to join us. The Public Safety Writers Conference was terrific, and it happened around Father's Day, so it was great timing for a visit.
    Hopefully another time when I visit Vegas, we can meet!
