Merging Rivers in Fort White
Florida has a unique system of freshwater springs and rivers. I am in love with these clear and peaceful places. My photographs are my personal view of these alluring waters. My hometown of Fort White is in the middle of these inviting, but often endangered, areas.
The town itself is nothing to look at, but the natural areas in and around Fort White are exceptionally beautiful. Also, did you you know that many Tarzan movies were filmed at Silver Springs and in the Silver River? Sea Hunts and Creature of the Black Lagoon were also filmed nearby.
Swimming and kayaking in a freshwater spring or two. Exploring, photographing, and then having a glass of wine with my husband and friends. My husband was a chef for many years in Chicago and now he is a bread maker in Fort White so I like to see what he’s cooking up.
The beauty of the place. The waters and the lush green foliage.
How you find paradise in the springs and rivers out in the the middle of nowhere in North Central Florida.
