SILVER SPRINGS 4 © 2013Ocala, FL
Silver Springs State Park in Ocala, Florida – Silver Springs is the premier spring of Florida, truly a beautiful place. I was invited to give a presentation at the celebration of the Florida State Park System taking over this iconic tourist attraction. The park was kind enough to take to share this beautiful river with me. Floating down the Silver Springs River was like floating on air. However, jumping into that cold clear water to photograph was challenging. It often looks shallow, but after putting a paddle down into the water I would find it was VERY deep. The area was a challenge, but a beautiful challenge to photograph.
