Photo of the day: Classic Florida wetlands

The Florida landscape includes more than sandy beaches. I spend a fair bit of time hiking in Central Florida, and some of my favorite landscapes are Florida wetlands. This photo was taken in the Orlando Wetlands Park this February, and I feel it epitomizes beauty of my favorite Florida scene. On this hike/walk we saw dozens of alligators, birds and pretty foliage, but this simple shot was my favorite.

  1. What a great shot! It’s amazing how beautiful natural Florida can be. Sometimes tourists and even residents just need to get away from the hustle and bustle of theme parks and downtown and just explore the real Florida outdoors.
