Another cell phone camera picture. This was taken this morning early before the fog lifted. Normally this flowering cherry tree doesn't bloom until the first of February.....the tree in the background (and to the right)with the Spanish Moss, is a Black Gum tree....the first to lose its leaves in fall and the last to get new leaves in the spring.

Aww Larry, with 10 inches of pending snow this week, this photo gives me hope and smiles! Lovely!

The fog gives it a beautiful soft feel. You sure do get early Springs down there.

As you can see Jen, I still have green grass under the leaves....but of course, this is Northern Florida (16.6 degrees C this morning at 7 o'clock). I've seen some beautiful 'snow pictures' here on FT this year....frost, too!! We had some snow in 1993!
Thanks for stopping by to see me...always makes my heart beat a little faster when you stick your head in the door.

Yes Mark....they get better all the time.

Thank you Darya

Thanks Pamela. Yes it was expensive (for me), but I needed a camera phone because I rarely carry my big camera + it has internet and everything else one might imagine.

There you go "picking on me" MaggieStar. I was out walking the dog around my yard around 7AM this morning....had my phone with me and remembered some of the wonderful foggy photos I've seen here on FT......plus, I don't have any new fractals and my friends are getting tired of my blank space.

Thanks 'Foggy.'

Yes it is Mary, but I miss the chilly mornings we get here in the winter months of late Nov. through middle Feb.

Thank you for stopping by Harvey. My first "fog shot"....I liked it too.

WONDERFUL....I have a flowering cherry tree too(Kwanzan)...beautiful tree...now I'm wondering if I've seen a shot of your dog.
Jan 06 2009 13:02 GMT larrybenedict
Thanks Nancy. No, you haven't seen a picture of my dog because I don't have a dog. I am "dog sitting" for a friend who is out of the country for a couple of weeks....maybe a month???

I love the flowering cherry tree and the fog in this shot really adds to the interest.

It's a great phone Larry........now how should I go about breaking mine in order to get a new one... ;-))))
Jan 06 2009 19:50 GMT larrybenedict
Thank you Elsie. Coming from you, that's a real compliment.

Meg....you could accidentally drop your phone in some water or behind the wheel of your automobile and let your husband roll over it and later find it in the drive way of your house. You would have to lose it first, of course! I'm sure our FT friends could come up with some good ideas on "How to ruin your cellphone."

Another beautiful image!

I think it's a great photo!

the trees with the spanish moss... we love to see them... and it is very
much in florida..... we have seen lots of those again when we were traveling around
in Destin area........
I like the wooded area where you stay....

Lovely shot Larry and I love that you identify the trees & such!!!

Hard to believe this was taken with a phone... great phone!!
Jan 08 2009 05:18 GMT larrybenedict
Thanks Londi........wanna know the names of the bushes!!! :-)))
Jan 08 2009 05:56 GMT Londi PRO

Maybe they're something that will have beautiful blooms soon? ;+)
Jan 08 2009 13:07 GMT larrybenedict
I was just kidding Londi. But in case you weren't.....other things in the picture, a white oak, a water oak, a sweet gum tree, and the bushes are Formosa azaleas, and clusters of spirea.....to be viewed with more enthusiasm later! There is a cluster of banana palms just to the right of the picture which you cannot see, and a Mandarin Orange tree.
