Florida is not all flat...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 6 October 2011 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio. this shot shows. This is where County Rt. 572 intersects with Culbreath Rd., heading east, about twenty minutes east of where we live. The speed limit is 50 mph and there are no good areas to pull off for photos. I took this when Mike was driving, so please pardon the lack of sharp focus.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

This would be the one high spot in Florida! Nicely captured Judy! ;-))

At least you didn't take it while YOU were driving. Cool POV.

@B. Thomas: No, not on this road at that speed ... but it has happened elsewhere! ;D

I love a good road shot & this one's great with the intersection & the distant curve to where? It offers many choices.

@Williams: Thanks, Paul ... the top of that distant curve is sadly a place for accidents. ;(

I like this a lot just as is. Amazing thick plush wall of foliage and trees on the right that almost swallowa up the power nice. And knowing you are on this roller coaster when photo taken adds a wide eye tension. OO :)

@Twojays: thank you!

klausZ from Kufstein, Austria

... it seems so! but nearly! ;-) great capture!

@klausZ: Yes, absolutely FLAT compared to Austria! ;D

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

The rolling Florida hills were a definite surprise for me the first time I experienced them. Of course, I came originally from really FLAT (even concave) land, so anything that seemed to rise was classified by me as a hill. Haha. Nice shot today, Judy. Land contours aren't always easy to photograph. You did it well.

@Viewfinder: Yes, "concave" is fitting. *grin ... I appreciate your comment on the contours. Taken from the passenger's seat, the left side of the road 'drew' them! ;D

Sandy Weston from Maine, United States

I do so miss the moss in the trees.....I know...weird...but I do! It reminds me of visiting in Mississippi and seeing it there ;) I like this photo Judy showing your landscape! :)

@Sandy Weston: Thanks, Sandy ... and I'm glad I touched a spot in your soul with this image. You may not know it, but you touch me regularly with my memories of New England. Do I miss the cold, snow and ice? No. Do I miss the architecture? Yes! ... We sometimes miss the changing of the seasons, tho' over the past few years, we've had more change than we did 20 years ago when we first moved south.

franz from Baden, Austria

ha, ha ... it's not exactly mountainous, either ...
but in all honesty, this gently rolling landscape is really attractive, as i can testify after driving through ... and the lush vegetation makes it even more so ...

@franz: Thank you, Franz ... and I'm glad you've had a chance to experience some of Florida.

Up and down you went through this enchanted "jungle" where trees are dressed like old Druids!

@Japanalia: I like the "old Druids" analogy! ;D
