    Default Blue Cypress Lake - Osprey and Owls

    I was lucky to be invited to a photo shoot with a friend to Blue Cypress Lake which is said to one of the most beautiful lakes in Florida. It is mostly undeveloped around the lake and is the head waters of the St. Johns river. The lake has a huge nesting Osprey population and lots of owls. I returned this morning with over 2100 images and will post them as I process them so here are a couple images.

    Stunning photos Pat! I'm always impressed by your photography skills.

    If there was a photography term equivalent for "two left feet" in dancing, that would be me for photography.

    Absolutely stunning photographs. You are very skilled.

    Blue Cypress Lake is not far from me, been fishing at Sebastian inlet a few times, may have to take a trip over there sometime. Looks beautiful.

    It is beautiful Bill. You may need a boat to access the lake.
