Off the beaten paths, sandy roads lead back into hammocks and lagoons. I saw some beautiful untouched areas of coastal Florida by walking down a road on a sunny day until it ended in the water. Palms, pines and mangroves were in abundance. The reflection of the blue sky made the brackish water appear to be a beautiful blue. The palette of cool colors captured the feel of the green flora as well as the blue water and sky. Hammock reflect different values and colors depending on the sun and the sky. Very refreshing in a back to nature way.
