I really should do more archive recon before I head out on my photo hikes. An after-the-fact check showed me that Ponce de Leon State Park is my hot weather Go-To.
The twin springs, one clear and the other tannic, are natural air conditioning that bring a cooling breeze to the trails meandering along the water. I found the juncture where the red water and the crystal water merge. There is an undulating demarcation between the two creeks, like a sort of yin and yang. Appropriate, since the park is very relaxing and peaceful.

Those are some great sights! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Wow, what a neat place. That clear stream is amazing. Without the shadow of the fish, I would barely be able to tell there is water.
Such a beautiful place! I love the shot of the fish. He looks like he’s floating above the water!
Gotta love it when one of your writerly friends uses the term, “undulating demarcation.” The hues of these Superior Snaps sparkle in an almost pastoral way. Yes, I realize you’re shooting water here, but “pastoral” still works, I think.

Your nature is full of surprises…

What a beautiful park! Love the contrasts!
The park is just that. The springs are wonderful to swim in and cool off from the Florida heat.
