Nobody but me, the island, the Bald Cypress tree, the sounds of birds, the sun shining on the water, the shade of the jungle and lots of plants. This was a real "get away from it all" day.

Robert, What a beautiful Photo, the colors are fantastic. I know what you mean about being out like this with just the trees, the bird sounds, sun,and plants. When I go in the woods to take pictures of the baby hawks, sometimes I am out there about 2 hours, just me and the birds, and I love every minute of it. Great picture, it must have been nice being there. Good work!
