FAMILY OF TREES

www.FeatherPenFreelance.com

This photograph was taken at Howard Park, in Tarpon Springs, FL; an authentic Greek town Westcoast hot spot for tourists to FL from all across the globe. This particular photograph showcases two clusters of palm trees  together & another cluster in the twilight sky behind them.  A perfect framed or unframed gift for a fan of paradise in your life.

EIGHTIES SKY

www.FeatherPenFreelance.com

This photograph was taken at the end of yet another long and quite warm day in the south, in the Indian Summer season of Westcoast Florida. One of the photographer's favorite pictures of the sky, Leila (pronounced Lay-la), loves the soft purples and yellows that bring her back to a simpler time.

BRITE BOLD CYPRESS GARDEN

image58

Many people who are not accustomed to life or vacations in the south, may wonder, what is a Cypress Garden? A Cypress Garden is a nickname, not found online, given to areas of wetlands off trails (typically) , where cypress trees take root. In the photograph, we can see the start of cypress trees along with the wet marsh and moss in the woods. It is a beautiful view in person. Among the sometimes muted browns and greens of the woods, the bright greens and bold browns of the cypress garden make it quite a worthy place to stop for a rest on a trail.

PEACE AT SUNDOWN

image59

This is a Howard Park (Beach) sunset. It was the perfect Indian Summer weather, at the perfect hour of the day for the late October day when this photograph was taken. One of the photographer's favorite sunset photographs.

TWILIGHT TOUCH

image60

Are you one of those many people who wonder when the time 'twilight' really is? There's two times of day considered, twilight, actually. The time between sunset and dusk, and the time between dusk and sunrise. This photograph was taken just after sunset, right after Peace at Sundown. Another one of the photographer's favorite sky photographs, the way that the shade plays with the glow of the twilight really brings the magic into this piece for the artist.

NEIGHBORHOOD AT TWILIGHT

image61

Another photograph taken at Twilight, just after sunset and before dusk, was taken behind the backdrop of a neighborhood baseball field - the center of the local neighborhood. The telephone poles, wires and street lamps were purposely kept in the photograph to emphasize the next-door "feel" that the photographer, herself, took from it when she snapped the shot. She hopes that whoever takes this particular photograph home feels the same liveliness, sense of belonging and even warm longing for old times that she, herself, felt when she grabbed the shot.

CRANE FAMILY OF FOUR

image63

As one of the largest birds in Florida, the Sandhill Crane is not known to be a friendly bird. This bird mates for life and, once a mate is killed, it will not mate again. If approached by an untrained individual like you or I, the Sandhill crane more than likely will attack - especially if male protecting a group or female protecting young. The Sandhill crane is considered majestic by the Audubon Society and bird lovers everywhere. This photograph was taken at a distance. It makes a great gift for any bird lover!

CORMORANT IN CAMO

image64

The Cormorant is one of the inarguably "coolest" birds found in the South. The Cormorant is literally an "Angler" Bird. Well, a water bird for everyone who does not take up the sport of fishing. He dives deep into the water, catching fish as he swims at very fast speeds. When he needs air, he simply pops his head up to the top of the water. usually just enough to be hard to spot (or look like a snake). When he is done hunting, the Cormorant sits on the side of the water and opens his wings to dry off beneath the sun. Cormorants can be seen "fishing" underwater at places like many outdoor parks in warm weather, in the south. In this photograph, this Cormorant is hiding under the brush staring out to his right following a noise he heard.

FEATHERED GOLDEN WALK IN THE WAVES

image65

Photographer, L.Skies, sticks to her wildlife "nature" here by capturing the gold off the overturning breaking waves in twilight with the water bird walking off into the distance to create a sense of peace and simplicity. The light from the sky can even be seen hitting off of the birds back as it leaves us. Just beautifully captured.

With the name inspired by the book by Richard Bach, and a favorite book of the photographers, Leila (pron. Lay-la) hopes to capture the curiousities of what this water bird is thinking.

SKY FULL OF BIRDS

image67

This photograph was captured after the sky filled with so many white and black birds, that no blue could be seen. The scene was so breathtaking, in fact, that L. Skie says she had to, "take the view in", before she stepped behind the lense. Since referenced by the photographer as one of the most majestic things she has ever seen, this shot is the final curtain.
