Rod and Reel Sunrise

Rick Florida, HDR, Landscape 0 Comments

At the very end of Anna Marie Island in Florida is the Rod and Reel. It’s a combination fishing pier, restaurant and Inn. Being at the very end of the island it’s off the beaten path and tends to be a favorite of the locals. I can honestly say that they have the best Grouper sandwich bar none. Whenever we have guest, this is probably our favorite spot for an authentic Florida Gulf Coast feel. Give it a try if your in the area, you won’t be disappointed.

JPL Dusk

Rick Landscape, Sunset 0 Comments

In the town of Jasper everyone refers to the Jasper Park Lodge as JPL. JPL is a lodge with cabins about 10 minutes from town such that it’s rather tranquil during the summer rush. I took this at dusk from one of the many platforms around the lake. A perfect setting for watching the sun go down and listening to the call of the Loons which, if you haven’t yet heard, is a real treat.

9.5

Rick Florida, Landscape, Sarasota, Sunset 0 Comments

The other day we went to dinner with our neighbors and on the way home Dave had the presence of mind to suggest we stop and look at the sunset. And it’s a good thing he did because the display we got that evening was nothing short of spectacular. At the end I think I said something to the effect that I’d never seen a 10, but this one rated at least a 9.5. Nonetheless, I didn’t have my camera so I snapped away with my iPhone.

Public Pier Walkway

Rick Florida, HDR, Landscape, Manatee County 0 Comments

On Anna Marie Island in Florida there is a public pier where you can fish, have a meal or just watch the dolphins and manatees as they frolic in the water. I arrived here at sunrise one morning only to find two other photographers with the same idea. Maybe it’s just me but I seem to be seeing a lot more photographers these days and they all seem to show up at the same spots. Or maybe I just never paid attention and they’ve always been there. Whatever the case, this turned out be be another morning in paradise and I am glad I was there to capture the moment.
