I love the fact that, although the sun sets in the west, you very often get reflected sunset hues in the eastern sky. This is especially noticeable at the beach, in this case the beach at Jupiter Inlet, Florida, which is facing east across the Atlantic Ocean Another thing I love about this photo is that if I move my laptop screen forward/backward I get totally different images.

I’m continuing with a series of “reflections” for the first part of this year mainly because I’m very fond of them and I also love the play on words!
This was taken at The Estuary, a community in Jupiter, Florida. When I’m in Florida, I love to go to the beach and watch the rising of the full moon each month. I was doubly blessed on this November evening as the setting sun gave enough light to capture this image. In case you care, I believe this is the 17th hole at the Jupiter Dunes Golf Club, a public 18 hole, par 3, “executive” course .

Many people feel that South Florida has no seasons but I disagree. Here, at the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter, you can clearly see that the leaves have turned and autumn has arrived. It’s all about slowing down and looking around you. Jupiter, Florida does have gorgeous beaches, palm trees, lush landscaping, great restaurants and proximity to world-class shopping. The Busch Wildlife Sanctuary provides a much more laid-back experience with loads of native animals (mostly rescued), serene landscapes, helpful and knowledgeable staff and is a fun and free treat, especially for children.

As the lazy, hazy days of summer come to an end on this Labor Day, this snoozer doesn’t seem too concerned! Taken at Busch Wildlife Center in Jupiter, Florida. The Center is just a delight, especially for children, with lots of native wildlife including panthers, raccoons, eagles and, of course turtles. Most of the birds, reptiles and animals were found wounded or orphaned and have been nursed back to health. Admission is free and donations are gratefully accepted. The gift shop is a wonderful source for souvenirs, stocking stuffers, and token gifts.

As well as sunsets, I have a real “thing” for the moon and also reflected images. So this photo satisfies all three as it was taken just after sunset, with the rising full moon and the trees and golf course nicely reflected. Taken November 2011, The Estuary at Jupiter Dunes, Jupiter, Florida.
