Last Month at Jelks Preserve—3

Maybe it is just a drainage ditch and not a small stream, but it catches reflections all the same . . .

Last Month at Jelks Preserve—1

December 18, 2015

My first photography trip in Florida this go-round was to Jelks Preserve. Husband David went with me, and I was hoping to show him some great spots in a place he’d never seen. I forgot, however, that Jelks Preserve’s great spots are miles away from each other and only great once in a while, especially in early spring. After spending an hour or so at what I’ve always thought was a small stream (David tells me it’s more like a drainage ditch—phooey), I wandered around another hour and a half finding nothing worth sharing here. The three photographs I am sharing are all from the small stream/drainage ditch area. I don’t understand why the leaves that were not lit up directly by the sun look bluish, but I like them that way.

Sunday I drove to Jelks Preserve. It was the first time I’ve gone to a Sarasota-area park to take photographs without Janet.
