What an awesome time we had in Florida. We arrived on December 1st and left on February 2nd, two whole months of following the Florida coastline. (Ya, I know its March now, I’m a little behind on my image processing.)
I love how they named their coastlines. Unlike BC where the names gives you no idea at all where the place is (like Oceanside or Westshore – come on that could be anywhere!) Florida has theirs named “Speed Coast” for the area around Daytona, “Space Coast” for the area around Cape Canaveral, the “Gold Coast” for the southern portion before the keys where all the shipwrecks brought gold coins to the shore, the “sun coast” (ok, that could be anywhere) and let’s not forget the “forgotten coast” along the Florida panhandle.
I can understand why this is called the forgotten coast because suddenly all the development stops and there is nothing but gorgeous white sand beaches and trees. Today’s image is from Port St. Joe, our last stop in Florida. It was a foggy morning and I made this image in the campground.

It was a little sad to leave Florida. I truly loved my time there. Except the drivers around Miami and Tampa, but every place has to have at least one flaw, right?
Probably you had a good reason to cut off. But I would have loved the lower part of the landscape included.

Awesome picture, Anne! I find fog to be one of my biggest challenges; it’s incredibly beautiful as I take the pictures, but I get back and am very disappointed with what I’ve done. You’ve really hit the mark here – it feels just like a foggy morning.
I vote that this becomes one of the images you make into a background 🙂

Most excellent shot Anne 🙂
Very moody shot, and cleverly positioned darker trunks that really aid the composition. Have you tried converting to B&W? I think the colour is monochromatic anyway and in B&W the tones are totally neutral. Might be worth taking a look….
Its really a great kind of shot..I can understand why this is called the forgotten coast because suddenly all the development stops and there is nothing but gorgeous white sand beaches and trees.
