Kelly Park: Rock Springs: Orange County, Florida

Kelly Park, located in Orange County, Apopka, Florida, is one of the Orlando area’s (maybe not-so) hidden treasures. Late last year, I kayaked Rock Springs Run from Wekiva River State Park, but not all the way to the beggining of the river at the actual Rock Springs (located within Kelly Park). Crystal clear, 68 degree year round water was wonderful to swim in during the summer heat.

Lake George Trail: Silver Glen Recreation Area

After a long string of art festivals in late February 2012, I decided to take a break and scout several areas in the Ocala National Forest, carrying a water bottle, my Mamiy 7ii, and a couple rolls of film. One of my stops was at Silver Glen, located in Marion County, which has one of my favorite springs to stop for a relaxing swim. Juniper Springs has always been my favorite place in Ocala to photograph and kayak, with its majestic river run, historical sites, and twisting boardwalks. Alexander has a less interactive feel, but is perhaps easier to sit in the sun and relax.

Florida Keys Photo Trek

My new years resolution was to become more prolific this year and photographic in-between art festivals. Last year, I spend too much time printing and matting and not enough time shooting. When I photograph something new and create a print, I can display the first edition immediately watch reactions from judges and the general public alike, which has been a big help progressing as an artist and finding my audience.
The Florida Keys were the first of my adventures.

Rock Springs Run State Preserve

Running all over the state this summer and fall, I sometimes forget to appreciate the hidden treasures of my local Orlando area. After becoming exhausted from traveling all over the state, I moved Rocks Springs Run up my list of places to shoot.
While it is true that many of the pristine open areas are gone, the rivers and swamps make you think your traveling through Florida 200 years ago, or maybe a Tarzan movie 60 years ago. The run was nothing but impressive, and a joy to paddle.

Big Cypress National Preserve, Fakahatchee, and Collier-Seminole

After visiting Sanibel Island in Captiva and Lover’s Key in Estero, Florida, I drove down the Tamiami trail for a day trip to visit the Everglades, namely the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve and the Big Cypress National Preserve. My goal here was scope out the area for a kayak trip I’m planning in January, but I did take a few nice photographs during a passing thunderstorm. The drive itself was beautiful and isolated. While the best view of the parks are in the swamp walks, the mosquitos made that impossible for this trip.
