Black Creek in the Jungle

Black Creek

This picture shows Black Creek at Three Lakes Conservation Area in Central Florida.  Even though the creek looks “black”, the water is actually pure and clear.  The dark color comes from tannins in the water.  The oak tree in the background is covered with Resurrection ferns and Spanish moss.  This subtropical jungle is very scenic!

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
