Florida, Snowbird Habitat

It’s literally a short hop, skip and jump from the north end of  Lake Ponchartrain, where we stayed while we visited New Orleans, through Mississippi and Alabama (those states are really narrow down there on the gulf). Crossed the border into Florida at Pensacola, had the free orange juice reluctantly offered at the Welcome Center and then traveled the panhandle for miles and miles and miles.

The beaches along this section of the Gulf are considered among the best in  the world. Did we visit any of them? No, we pounded along Interstate 10 for two days to reach our destination. We were on a mission, we had a deadline. Maybe the next time we visit Florida we’ll take in these beautiful beaches.

Got some good shots of a Blue Angels aerobatic aircraft. I think they turned out pretty well, but here is the secret to getting such good shots.

A stationary subject is a lot easier to photograph than a moving target.

  1. Ah, the infamous drive-by vacation! I’ve had more than my share of those. In fact, you might even say “been there, done that…” and would have bought the t-shirt, but we didn’t stop at the t-shirt shop either. Sigh.

    I hear ya about the stationary objects. I’ve found myself yelling at twitchy little birds to just “hold still a minute, wouldya?!” 🙂
