More pretty pictures

Here are a few more shots that I think turned out pretty.  What you see here are the shots as I have taken them.  I did not use any software to retouch the shots.  Maybe should and they would be a little more dramatic but I want to share the Island with you in it's natural state so to speak.

More from the walkways to the beach at Ocean's Reach.  The beach is so pretty on it's own on Sanibel Island.  It is definitely a very natural beach.  I love the fact that they do not rake the beach and that they keep the natural barrier between the beach and the condo complexes.  The sea grasses and such. 

and to make the walk to the beach even prettier you have the lushness of the plants and flowers to frame your view of the ocean.

I love these trees.  The crookedness of the branches make them look so cool and interesting.

Speaking of cool trees...this last one isn't on the property of Ocean's Reach.  It is near the Chapel by the Sea on Captiva.  But I love how it's branches look.

From the shopping complex at Periwinkle....well I started this post with pretty pictures but then the tree branches got me sidetracked...but I kinda like the way it ended up so I am staying with it.  Well.. how about some more pretty shots of the ocean....ok....you talked me into it...tehee....love the shape of these branches.....

and maybe one more.......

Had to stay with the "tree" theme........sure do wish I were sitting on that bench right now.........seriously wishing I was on that bench ...sigh...

Until next time, I sure do hope you are having a great day and I thank you so much for stopping by!

I found one more cool tree - this one is outside the Island Cow.  And the little beauty striking her "top model" pose in the middle of the tree is my little ray of sunshine - Kenna!
