Helicopter seeds on the ground. Normally, these age further and then fall off the tree one at a time, spinning like helicopters due to the construction of their wings. This allows the tree to spread its seeds far and wide if a good wind comes through.

Photo: Sunshine 7: Through the Leaves

Sunshine through the evergreen leaves of a loquat tree. I increased the contrast and used a layer to make the sunlight more glowing on the computer. This is another photo from January 2006.

The reflection of the sky, clouds, trees, and power lines in a mirror for sale for $15 at a garage sale in Ormond Beach on Jan. 21, 2006. This is a new edit. I’ve posted Reflection 1 but skipped 2 and 3 because they aren’t great.

Photo: Autumn Leaves 7

Yellow leaves on a Chinese Talo tree, Dec. 31, 2005. This would be “Winter Leaves 7” if Florida’s winters weren’t like other states’ autumns.

Autumn Leaves 3-6 weren’t very good, so I’m not going to post them. :smile:

A view across the lake. The water was in fact quite green, but I corrected that by changing the white balance.

This is a new edit of a photo I took in 2005. The original was quite dull, but with a simple contrast enhancement it became a memorable photo.

A sunrise from December of 2005. I had to get up early that day to take my ACT college entrance exam which I got a composite score of 28/36 on. In two weeks I will finally finish my A.A. degree.
