Kennedy Space Center

I have spent a lot of time in Florida. My parents lived there for a while and we have life long friends in Tampa. We went to Disneyworld as young married adults and returned four times with our daughter. We have visited the Florida Keys, Universal Studios and I remember once a lion climbing on my dad’s car when we went to Lion Country Safari. In all those visits we had never been to The Kennedy Space Center.

This year we finally made it and it was worth the wait. The place is huge and the bus tour takes you right out to the launch pads and next to the Vehicle Assembly Building . The size of everything is gigantic and standing next to the even the smaller rockets is breathtaking. If you haven’t visited it is a wonderful day when visiting Florida.

Big Blue

The Blue Heron is a beautiful fisher bird that migrates to Florida and other southern states during the winter. There is something about this particular one that made me think that this bird knew exactly how pretty it was. The bird kept turning as we walked along a boardwalk almost as if posing for a photograph.

Florida Waterfall

This title is really a stretch. Florida doesn’t really have waterfalls. The highest elevation in the state id 345 feet so the terrain doesn’t lend itself to what a Pennsylvanian would call a waterfall. There are cascades and rapids however in some of the rivers and streams. Florida also has wonderful and well run State Parks with great facilities that are well maintained. This picture was taken at Hillsborough River State Park north of Tampa.

I didn’t have a tripod but was able to rest the camera on a railing and take this picture at a shutter speed of 1/8th of a second at f22 with an ISO of 100. Normally I would use a tripod for this kind of shot but have been impressed with Nikon’s VR {vibration reduction} lenses and risked the shot. It turned out so well I am sorry I did not experiment with even slower shutter speeds.

Florida Brown Pelican

If you follow this blog you have come to realize that I love Pelicans. I photograph them whenever I can and even offer Pelican apparel on my commercial site. Yet as many as I have photographed, I have still not captured the “money shot”. The shot that I visualize is a Pelican rising out of the water with a fish in his mouth. I guess I have to keep taking pictures of them. This one was captured in flight off Merritt Island in Florida.
