    Very nice shots! I can't help but laugh that your location is Winter Park, Florida. Some sort of weirdly ironic situation considering Florida shouldn't usually be allowed to call that season, winter. I have relatives down there who complain about needing a sweater when it drops down to the 60's this time of year.
    :lol:
