31/52 Orlando and Dawn


More pics from our June vacation at Thousand Trails Orlando Nature Preserve and RV Resort.

I woke early a couple mornings to capture the new day dawning over Lake Hancock. I used my Kodak for the mellow yellow sunrise photos you see in the gallery below because my Nikon battery died (I left the camera on overnight). The next morning, my Nikon and I were charged and ready for the more subdued, serene view I witnessed just before the sunrise.

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.

30/52 Bill L Ampen tree carving


This tree is one of many exciting finds on our recent vacation to Orlando, Florida, which included a week’s stay at the Thousand Trails Orlando Preserve campground. On our arrival at the RV resort we found our cabin, then drove down to the lake, where we found this magnificent tree draped in Spanish-moss with the carving by Bill L Ampen. Other than the signature you see here, I know nothing more about this tree or the man responsible for this work of art. My teenage daughter and her friend found the climb more enjoyable.
