While visiting Orlando Florida I was fortunate to find some time to photograph the city at night and then visit some of the local parks during the day to come up with this contrasting collection of photos from the area.
Lake Eola provides great reflections of the downtown Orlando buildings and many interesting subjects. It is a popular spot for runners and other photographers! I knew I wanted to photograph "Take Flight" a great sculpture by Kentucky based Artist Douwe Blumberg and the interesting cypress trees that grow in the water.
The first park I visited was the Orlando Wetlands Park. As it was Florida after all, I went with the idea to get an image with a palm tree with the wetland landscape or wildlife in the background. Unfortunately the Ranger had a rather early interpretation of sunset which cut my visit short just as the sky was getting interesting.
Lake Louisa State Park was my last stop. I arrived just as the ranger opened the gates to see the sunrise. A very nice lake and park that would be much more fun to explore with bug spray!
