David, this is gorgeous. Where in Florida is this? I'm on the south east coast area between West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale and would love to keep this in mind if it's a reasonable distance. I'm somewhat limited as my husband uses a walker and with back issues finds it uncomfortable to do very long drives but we both want to shoot so I'm always looking for new local or at least reasonably local things I can convince him to try.   Posted: 02/14/2021 12:55:45

This is up in the panhandle of FL on the "forgotten coast" near Applachicola. I was with a workshop group that had a rented boat and guide.   Posted: 02/19/2021 05:52:36

David- You picked the right time to shoot which turned out to be a beautiful image with a sunrise glow. I liked that but I like to see your bottom portion of the tree is almost touching the border which needs separation. It can be done in PS easily. However, you did very well except for a small thing that I noticed during my comments.

Beautiful shot! I was up there (pre-COVID) and at the time, the water level was too low to put a boat in. Seeing this I definitely want to visit the area again. I like Shaikh's idea of providing a tiny bit of separation at the bottom.   Posted: 02/22/2021 13:20:51
