Key Biscayne View From The Top

We travel a lot & it gives me a chance to put my camera to work. Lighthouses are some of my favorites, but I'll save most of those pics for later. This one is from Key Biscayne, a beautiful little key off of Miami Beach. We climbed these stairs on a blistering hot day, but the view was worth it. Fortunately, there are only half as many steps here as the one in St Augustine.  

The lighthouse leans a little, like that famous building in Italy. Not the photographer's fault! 

I like how the beach curves here. The pictures from the opposite side had too many people in the frame - reminded me of the Jersey shore. Empty is better.

People live in these little huts. Wouldn't want to ride out a hurricane here.

I like centering most shots, but sometimes lining things up to one side gives a better perspective. The centered shot (deleted) interrupted the nice background & was all tree trunk. This one seemed to grab all the important stuff. I'll post a bunch of pictures of palm trees (& coconuts) later.

Thanks for visiting - I love getting comments & I still want to get more followers than Dave. He will be so jealous. 


  1. Love the picture of the palm frond - perfect! I also agree with you about the Jersey Shore, yuk that's why I'm going to be on Cape Cod.

  2. I've never been there. Thanks for sharing. Very interesting and beautiful!

  3. Shamelessly reaching out to get more followers I see. You're trying to stack the deck!!!

    Glad you skipped the pics from the north side of the lighthouse - so many people - looked like a breeding ground for seals.

  4. Thanks Arlene - Jersey shore is really crowded. I haven't been to Cape Cod (yet). Ronnie - the keys are beautiful. My favorite is Islamorada. Dave I'm still going to get more followers. Watch out.

  5. Dave sent me here. I'm so glad he did -- gorgeous photos! I envy you your garden.

  6. Thanks for visiting Pat. I just posted something new, finally. Not flowers this time. I miss my garden - we've been traveling so much lately.
