My own backyard

With gas prices still so expensive, I’m trying to stay closer to home for my photo hunts. Saturday I spent time at some of my favorite local spots, just making a huge loop around town.

I took these photos at Henderson Beach State Park, Clement Taylor Park, Maxwell Gunter Recreation Area, and Turkey Creek Nature Trail ~ all located in Okaloosa County, Florida.

Guidos: "Hey, sexy mama! How’d you get so fine?"

(Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens and/or a Nikon CoolPix S205)

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. OMG, the THIRD shot is INCREDIBLE, Tara. I want to frame that and put it in my dining room next to your other pic I have 🙂 It is just so STUNNING and the colors are so vivid!
