Lake Greenwood in May

After my first attempt at HDR (Lake Greenwood in February), I got the idea to make a 4-part series of the changing seasons reflected in the Lake Greenwood landscape. So here is part 2, which would be Spring. I wish there had been more clouds in the sky and less whatever-the-gunk-that-is in the lake, but it is what it is.

Ponce Inlet Lighthouse

We made our first trip to the beach this year to Ponce Inlet. It's a beautiful beach and is home to the tallest lighthouse in Florida. It has been up since 1887 and is 175 feet tall. I climbed the 203 steps to the top, taking some shots along the way. Check out my friend Kristi's blog, Unknown Florida for some more info on the place and for other great ideas of things to do in Central Florida!

Apopka Art & Foliage Festival

This was our fifth(?) annual trip to the Apopka Art and Foliage Festival. I look forward to it every year. They have art and foliage obviously, but this year they also had some interesting wildlife.

Chloe thought the butterfly tent was awesome.

There was a taxidermy vendor there this year. Creepy, but interesting.

I fell in love with this rehabilitated owl!

He was so beautiful and he knew it.

DIY Photography Accessories

"On the day the digital camera was invented, the photographer died." I completely thought this way for a long time! This article cracks me up, but it really has a lot of great tips. I'm going to make my own light tent, definitely.
