Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Man-made

You might not think of Florida when you think of waterfalls. In fact I only know of one waterfall in the state’s panhandle. Yet you will find many waterfalls in various areas of the larger cities, manmade waterfalls. This example is in SeaWorld Orlando.

Rainbow

A bright sunny day can completely obliterate the fine colors of a rainbow. While I pondered my disappointment in not seeing a rainbow I decided to use a second polarizing lens. What was once invisible now showed a clear arch of color.

Our National Treasures…

There are nearly 400 treasured units maintained and preserved by the National Park Service. Among these include national parks, monuments, preserves, recreation areas, lakes and seashores, rivers, trails and parkways. Also included are various historic and archaeological units including landmarks, memorials and battlefields. While national forests are maintained by the US Department of Agriculture I include them in my national park category because I treasure them as such. It has been my goal to visit each of these units both of the National Park Service and forest. I lost count at 56, even so I know I have a very long way to go. Here are just a few samples of our national treasures.
