"From The North Fork" Visits The Keys

We went south to celebrate an 80th birthday, reune with family and get a little fly fishing in over the Thanksgiving holidays.  The Florida Keys have become a second home for us as we have gone there for a few weeks every year for over 35 years, Big Pine Key especially.  One day waiting for the tide to change out in the "back country" flats going into the Gulf of Mexico, I put down my rod and took out the camera.  The 2 PM sun was playing the shallow waters like a prism, color dancing in my eyes.  As we drifted I took nearly 100 photos of the bottom not knowing what to expect as the water and my platform, a shallow draft skiff, was in constant motion.  I was pleased when some of them looked nice, some clear, some more impressionistic...  you just never know.

Click on photos to enlarge, it's more fun.





































HAVE A JOYFUL, PEACEFUL, MERRY HOLIDAY!

Ah, Big Pine Key. I used to go camping there every February when I was a much younger adult. A glorious place! Merry Christmas!

Such wonderful colours, such a sense of flowing forms merging and diverging, such a sense of quiet peace. Thank you.
