A view like this must make the residents very happy!

Great capture. When I travel to your part of the world I love the Spanish moss.

Danielle said...

Very nice...it almost looks like my neck of the woods...I wouldn't mind living in Ocala if I lived at this place.

Bibi said...

Beautiful...any crocs I should watch out for? Bibi is small....

Reminds me of scenes from Kiawah Island here along the coast... lush, Deep South, and inviting!

It looks so inviting. The only problem being, I am allergic to mosquito bites and I have a feeling there might be some of those around that pond. I remember when I was a kid in Illinois, the city would come down the streets spraying DDT. That should give everyone an idea of how old I am.

Beautiful neighborhood.

Re your 5 guys comment. The burgers are terrific. As are the fries. Although your wife might have a hard time finding something on the menu as a vegetarian. I don't remember seeing a salad.

Some people do not like Spanish Moss but it certainly does quickly identify the geographical area, doesn't it? Since I do not have to "deal with it," I think it's very beautiful and romantic!

I love the atmosphere of this scene. It might look spooky at night, though.

Randy said...

Mossy trees. Love it.

Sharon said...

We both have green space shots today. Totally different trees but, lots of green grass.
Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Hi Lowell, this photo is so beautiful it ALMOST makes me want to move to Florida. I have posted on Astoria Daily today. I THINK I'm back. We will see!

Karl Demetz said...

A nice quiet place to spend the Sunday. Beautiful shot, Lowell!

RedPat said...

That looks like prime Florida to me! So inviting!

Linda said...

Truly stunning.

Birdman said...

Oh, I like this one. Is there a hammock for me there?

Clear up some info I heard recently about the Villages. I hear it's the largest retirement community in US; they only can get FoxTV there; and it's filled with teabaggers? True or false? Need to know--- I might be movin' .

Lois said...

That picture could have been taken here! It's beautiful and I love the reflections in the water.

Jack said...

This is a welcome sight, Lowell. I love Spanish moss. Seven more weeks.

Kay said...

I love where I live, but this spot is so inviting and filled with atmosphere. It's a beautiful shot. I almost feel like I'm there.

The Spanish Moss hanging on the trees is so deep South. Pass me a mint julep and we can set a spell and swap some yarns. Nicely done Lowell.

I love weeping willow, so I am sure I would love the spanish moss if I lived farther south.

You have a house here? Wow!!

Halcyon said...

Love that Spanish moss!

EG CameraGirl said...

I very much like the loom of the Spanish moss.

Lea said...

If there are more Spanish moss and it's not a residential area, I would have thought of dinosaurs appearing. Nice shot! :)

What a setting! I want a house there! :-)
