Quiet Waters

Quiet Waters

Another week over. This lovely scene can be found at Quiet Waters park, near Deerfield Beach, South Florida. It was my first visit on Saturday. Not hard to see where the name comes from!! Sunset heaven.

  1. Don’t you just love Florida sunrises and sunsets? Lived in the Bradenton/Sarasota area for 8 years and I still miss it.
    This pic is just fantastic, Yvette.


    1. To be honest Paul you can take the girl out of Australia but you can’t take Australia out of the girl! Yes, I’m enjoying Florida and it was a treat to see and hear so many birds taking this shot. Australia is abundant with noisy birds like cockatoos, kookaburras and galahs and I miss them. Where I lived in Oz I could set my watch to a flock of about 300 cockatoos that flew over our house each morning and at dusk. I do have a pic on file somewhere.. I’ll post it so you can see. Florida in the winter is pretty darn nice. As I write I’m sitting in the sun on my balcony risking a sunburn. Could be worse. πŸ™‚


      1. Didn’t realize you were from Australia, Yvette. It’s always fascinated me. Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii are all on my bucket list. Want to experience the beauty and diversity of each. Must admit to being a bit jealous of you sitting in the sun on your balcony. Here is 18deg with 4in of new snow last night. Wanna trade???


    1. Thank you Thomas. Actually I couldn’t believe my luck. First time in the park and I just happened to be next to the lake as the sun went down and the longer I sat there the more breathtaking the moment. I’m not a huge fan of harassing nature but I did employ my son to toss a stone into the grass a couple of times to stir the birds. There were so many birds around and they did fly about of their own accord but shooting a sunset is a finite opportunity and sometimes you just have to do what you have to do. It could be argued that was a little contrived but it is exactly as it looked, I just need to cue the birds. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait for the summer time when clouds in Florida are gigantic and the sky takes on a different kind of drama. A photographers dream really.
