I am away for a medical congress this weekend, will work on the pics monday as soon as I am back and have photoshop.
OEM RAW converter (the RAW software that came with the camera) is usually very handy, you can try reconverting this picture, your eyes correct for color temperature, you see a white paper white if the light is white (sunlight) blue (cloudy)or reddish (tungsten bulb) or even green (fluorescent lamps) the camera isn't smart enough to do this, (it could be but color calorimeters are too expensive to be used here) white balance is here to correct this.
While converting this picture in RAW set white balance to shade or better set it to click white balance and select any white area, you will have immediate results, Will show you mine on monday.
Have a nice weekend.

OK... I'll add a "few" from my pile of thousands of pics. B) I put them in a slide show since I couldn't narrow it down any further than the amount I did. I left a few hundred out. I'm really proud of my pics. Sorry - I love to share them!!

(If you hoover in the upper right hand corner you can change the speed of the slides to make them faster)

Thanks for watching at least some of it... ;)

Thank you! I'm proud of my pictures. I love showing them off and this is the best, biggest audience I have right now. That water is The Weeki Wachee River near Brooksville, Florida. I copied this from the internet - pretty informative:

The river is best known for its spring, and the Weeki Wachee Springs attraction built on the premises. The spring is the surfacing point of an underground river, which is the deepest naturally occurring spring in the United States. The spring is so deep that the bottom has never been found. Each day, more than 117 million gallons of clear, fresh water bubbles up out of subterranean caverns. The water temperature is a steady 74.2 °F year-round. Divers report that the cave has a roomlike tunnel that is 55 feet wide, 28 feet high, and 220 feet long. They have been able to map and explore over 6,700 feet of deep passages, and report 1 pit to be just over 400 feet deep, the deepest recorded in the United States.

As far as I know, it's the only natural spring around that is still actively flowing. They are right about the water temp - 74.2 degrees all year round! And the water is as clear as you see in the pictures! Wish you could come swim in it. Call if your ever in town! I'll give you a personal tour! B)

Thanks Nina... I love the 'Cirrhosis of the river' too!! It's at the start of the Weeki Wachee boat trip. The dog was actually kind of scary - he was running across the water towards us. We weren't sure if he was happy or not!!!!

Not a good pic as I only had my phone on me, I'll try and get some better shots in a few days with my Fuji. She's a Curlew and wasn't very happy with me for trying to get some pics of her chicks...
