The Great Chuluota Citrus Freeze of 2003 and Now 2010

I moved to Chuluota, Florida in 1998.  I always knew that it was colder in the country but I had no idea that I would live in a little isolated pocket that seemed to get colder than anywhere else in the area.  Chuluota is a few miles northeast of Oviedo which is about 30 minutes outside of downtown Orlando.  I live on 5 acres across from the Econolockahatchee River that is just beautiful for Florida Photography.

There have been many nights in the 20’s and lots of frost over the years.  There were years when a Gardenia bush or a fruit tree just could not take it anymore and lost some or all of it’s leaves.

The best I can figure, I am protected from wind with a dense forest on two sides and scrub oaks, pines and palmettos on the remaining two.  Without any wind or slight breeze the temperatures plummet.  My thermostat is placed on a fence post surrounded by Bahia grass in an open area 30 feet from the house.  This way there is no chance of getting a skewed reading resulting from the heat retained in the pool concrete or from the home.  I know the thermostat is calibrated and accurate because I have checked it against other thermometers.  I have also noted frost on the ground when the thermometer read 30 or 31 degrees.

On an extremely cold morning, January 23, 2003 to be exact, I heard an idea that a little water sprayed on the fruit trees would help keep them from freezing.  So I turned my sprinklers on the fruit trees and went back to bed.  When I awoke it looked like a winter wonderland.  I think I did more damage to the fruit trees by loading up their branches with the excessive weight of the frozen water and causing them to snap.  There were frozen orangecicles everywhere!

Sprinklers were on most of the night in 2003

The temperature was 17.9 degrees!   Surprisingly enough the trees and the fruit were not that badly damaged due to the freeze.  I believe they were protected from the extreme cold with the, what should have been, a thin layer of ice.

That was then.  This is now.  This morning, January 7th, 2010, at around 7:30am, I checked the remote thermometer in the kitchen, 18.1 degrees!  Holy crap!  I few minutes later I notice that it was already warming up and 18.3 degrees.  Hhhmmmmmm, I thought to my self, I wonder if the minimum temperature was lower than 18.1.  Yes, it was!  17.4 degrees!!! This was a new record for where I live.

I’m not sure of the damage to the trees as of yet.  Some of the smaller fruit was frozen solid but the larger ones might still be ok.  Only time will tell.  NO frozen orangecicles this time.  I decided to let mother nature do what she is going to do and I will refrain from burdening my trees with a load of ice.  As long as the temperatures keep freezing then I am sure my Florida Photography will get some abstract ice in it.

So that is my latest story from the frozen Arctic Tundra called Chuluota.  Kind of makes you wonder about this whole global warming thing doesn’t it.

Eye Floaters Part 2

My eye floaters appeared to have gotten worse over the last couple of days.  This is not uncommon for me as I have been changing my diet and lifestyle over the last couple of months and have seen this happen before.  It just hasn’t been for the better.

In the previous post I was giving some suggestion on what changes I am going to start implementing in my life:

So here is what we are starting with now that the statistics have been set, including my photography equipment for the eyes, GHP Sport and Bazi.

  • I am going to continue to take GHP Sport every night before bed and three times a week prior to exercise.
  • I am also going to keep taking Bazi 1.5 oz twice a day.  (Once in the morning and another time later in the day.)
  • 30 minutes of cardio exercise 6 times a week.  (I am easily doing this 3 times a week already.)
  • Eat one salad per day.
  • Eat One orange/grapefruit in the morning.
  • Start off with a 50% cooked and 50% raw food intake.
  • Attempt to get 30 minutes of sunshine each day with as much skin exposed as possible.

One important thing I failed to include in this list was “DO NOT OVEREAT!”.  Do not overeat.  Do not Over Eat.  Do Not Over Eat.  DO NOT OVEREAT!
That should cover it.  I have read numerous articles about overeating.  Even if you eat perfectly, when you overeat, the body is unable to process the food correctly.  If we just eat smaller portions more frequently our body will thank us.

  • Do not overeat.

Back to Eye Floaters or Eye Floaties.  I noticed that floaters were more prevalent just recently.  The following are a couple of things that might have contributed to this:

  • I overate a heavy meal of steak and potatoes.  (It was delicious.  I got pulled in.)
  • Cold Front with the coldest weather of the year. (Not sure what this has to do with Floaters, coincidence?)
  • Lots of Salt.  (I caved and ate a whole bucket of salted popcorn at the movies.)
  • Detoxification. ( I am detoxifying from two plus months of eating very poorly.)
  • Lack of sleep.  (I had not been sleeping very well.)

I will attempt to track the amount of floaters in my eyes and see if I can pinpoint what benefits or hurts this condition the most.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

One last thought.  Before I started using GHP Sport and Bazi, my photography equipment for the eyes, when I ate a steak one or both of my eyes would be completely bloodshot the next day.  This happened almost every time I consumed red meat.  Now I am able to get away with eating red meat and the bloodshot eye rarely happens.  Even when my diet is not the best the combination of the GHP Sport and Bazi keeps my eyes as clear and white as I can remember!   I have even had a reduction in a Pterygium and that rarely bothers me.  Not as I clean up my diet I should really see some great results in 2010.  It’s going to be a great year!

Eye Floaties – Can you Slow, Stop or Even Eliminate Them?

My eyes are the most important piece of photography equipment I own.  I have always had floaties or floaters in my eyes.  We are going to find out if you can do something about floaties.  But first some people might want to what an eye floatie is. Eye floaties are clumps of debris that float about in the vitreous cavity of your eye. They cast off a shadow on your retina which shows up as a floatie when you view an unpatterened surface or background such as a blue sky. As your eye moves your eye, the eye floaties appear to move with your line of site. Even though the floaties are normal, they can be quite bothersome. Some learn to live with them, but if they are causing problems for you, some poeple claim you can take steps to improve them and even clear them up all together.  I figure I would be a great test case.

I have had floaties for a long time.  They were barely noticeable back when I was about 6 and lying on the front seat of the boat seasick staring at the sky or the white fiberglass side of the boat.  I would notice a couple of objects that appeared to be floating in my eye.  That was when I first discovered them.

They have not been a problem for me.  However they have become more noticeable over the last 2 or 3 years.  I do notice that they fluctuate getting better and worse throughout the year.  For the last two years my diet and lifestyle has also gotten better and worse.

So being this is the beginning of a new year, why not do a little test and see if I can get some improvements with the amount of eye floaties as well as my vision.  This way as I clean up my diet and lifestyle I will document vision changes.

Let’s start with the basic statistics.  I am 41 year old, 6′-2″, 196 pounds (after two months of holiday gorging) and have noticeable eye floaties when I stare at a blue sky, a white wall, or my computer screen with a blank document.  With my left eye my vision clears up enough to read at 7″ from my face and with my right eye the vision clears up at about 12 or 13″.  So, No reading glasses for me and my arms are plenty long enough.  I can see close to 20-20 with both eyes open.

I have noticed in the past that my vision appeared to get better and colors became more vivid as I cleaned up my diet and ate much more raw fruits and vegetables.

So here is what we are starting with now that the statistics have been set, including my nutritional photography equipment that I take for my eyes, GHP Sport and Bazi.

  • I am going to continue to take GHP Sport every night before bed and three times a week prior to exercise.
  • I am also going to keep takingBazi1.5 oz twice a day.  (Once in the morning and another time later in the day.)
  • 30 minutes of cardio exercise 6 times a week.  (I am easily doing this 3 times a week already.)
  • Eat one salad per day.
  • Eat One orange/grapefruit in the morning.
  • Start off with a 50% cooked and 50% raw food intake.
  • Attempt to get 30 minutes of sunshine each day with as much skin exposed as possible.

That should be a good start.

Old SR 13 Railway Trestle – Florida Photography

Florida Photography - Train TrestleLocated in the Little Big Econ State Forest is a Florida Photography gem.  About 1 mile west of Snow Hill Road and the Econlockhatchee River, exists what is left of the Old SR 13 railway trestle.  This was part of the Flagler Railroad System that had its hay day back in the early 1900’s.  The creosote-soaked pilings of the old railroad bridge are all that remain.  The Chuluota Land Company was established in 1912 and they sold Chuluota (Central Florida) lands to the Flagler System and the Florida East Coast Railroad was built through Chuluota, across the Econ and into Geneva.  The trains stopped running in the 1930’s and the tracks were taken up around 1940.

If you look directly at the pilings, close your eyes and listen very closely, off in the remoteness you can still hear the whistle blow.  Like thunder rumbling in the distance the old train is coming.  You can hear the 95 ton locomotive clanking against the steel rails until finally the metal giant appears through the trees and towers over the pilings of the trestle that stands strong allowing the clatter, the smoke and the steel to pass.  Soon the thunder fades as do the memories of an era long gone by and all that remains are the creosote-soaked pilings, which seem out of place, buried in the sand on the banks of the pristine Econlockhatchee River. One of many dream places for Florida Photography.

Opening Day Duck Season – South Florida

Here is a little video that I put together regarding the opening day duck hunt in South Florida. It was a little warm but the ducks were flying everywhere. See for yourself.

We were limited out in less than an hour and would have been less than 30 minutes but I kept getting distracted with my camera. We ended up with 5 Blue Wing Teal and 1 Florida Mottled Duck each.

Check out my other site and the Ultimate Duck Huting Video game. It just might help you shoot more ducks. www.nintendowiicost.com

Missed Opportunity Can Come with Rewards

Even if you are busted stay patient you might just get a second chance both with your bow and Florida Photography Equipment.  My Largest Buck with a Bow to Date came with a small price.

Slipping into the woods behind my house that morning I spooked a couple of deer just before reaching my stand.  They never winded me, nor blew, they just eased off into the darkness of the scrub oaks and palmettos.   I was hopeful they would return and act as a decoy for the bucks that had been showing up on the trail camera.

Tri-Pod Feeder

Tri-Pod Feeder

This year I managed to get the setup perfect.  I moved the trail camera and adjusted the pipe feeder.  I started playing around with a pipe feeder last year but never kept it full and the camera was in a location where I only took pictures of deer near the tri-pod feeder.  2008 it seemed to be 10 to 1 doe to buck ratio.  Boy what a difference a year makes.  This year it is  about 2 to 1 buck to does.  I have pictures of button bucks, spikes, 3 points, 4 points, three 6 points, three 8 points, and a 9 point!   There is no shortage of bucks this year.  They are really eating the corn, consuming a 50 pound bag every 4 days and with the camera in the right location I can capture all the shots!

IMG_6407huntingsetup

Feeder Opening

The pipe feeder is a vertical 3 foot tall 8 inch diameter pvc pipe attached to a wood base with a 3”x2” arch cut into the front edge of the pipe at the base to allow the corn to spill onto the platform.  It’s located a little close to my stand at 10 yards but that was the most suitable tree to attach it to.  It’s really difficult to get a shot there because of its proximity to the stand.

Pipe Feeder

Pipe Feeder

I live on 5 acres that backs up to about 1,000 acres of state land.  The deer are constantly feeding on my property or passing through.  So all year long I enjoy taking pictures and just watching the deer feed and interact with each other.  I see how they respond to cars passing by or my neighbor cooking on his grill.   It’s amazing what they will tolerate.

Let the Games Begin

This is where the games begin.  I was busted earlier in the season as the wide 6 point walked up to the feeder.   He put his head down to feed and I attempted to move my bow into position.  He caught the movement did a 180 and was gone.

So I had to find a way to get the shot.  I had a couple of choices.  Swap the ladder stand out for a box blind or add some blind material to the ladder stand or better yet make a little mini blind at the feeder out of palmetto leaves.  That’s what I did and did it ever work perfectly.   I tested it one afternoon on a young buck I saw in velvet earlier this year.  He came to the pipe feeder and when he put his head down to feed it went behind the palmetto leaves and all I could see was his body and better yet, I now had a clear shot on the vitals.  I was able to move every time he put his head down to feed.  Now I new I was ready for that big buck to come in and do the same.

Back to the Hunt

I settled into my stand about an hour before sunrise.  It was a chilly 60 degrees out.  “This is Central Florida you know.”  Very little wind was present and there was a calmness in the woods that would allow me to hear any approaching deer, so I thought.  One thing I continue to relearn every year is that a deer can come in like a bull in a china shop where you hear him from a mile away or they can materialize right before your eyes never making a sound.

My 15’ ladder stand rests against a pine tree where the old barbed wire fence is now a part of the tree.  So when does slip under the fence gently brushing the fence with their back you can almost feel it resonate in your body as everything vibrates.   I never heard a sound until something shook the barb wire fence like it was trying to rip the post out of the ground (causing every hair on my body to stand up and nearly shaking me out of the tree!).   From past experience, when a deer jumps over a fence,

Wire Through Pine

Wire Through Pine

it usually is a buck.  This was no exception although the buck did forget to pick up his landing gear and he clipped the wire with his hoofs waking me up like caffeine in an IV drip.  The buck wasted no time and went straight for the pipe feeder.

15' Ladder Stand

15' Ladder Stand

Once you know you are definitely going to take a shot at something with horns you become a complete wreck.  I can sit in a stand calm and cool all year long with my camera and never get too excited but when you put that bow and arrow in my hands all bets are off.  So here I am shaking, breathing heavy but I still manage to swing my bow around before the buck clears the oaks and comes into view.  The bow’s bottom cam is resting on my knee as I remain seated, a shot I always practice out of that stand.  The buck walks right up to the pipe feeder puts his head down to feed.  Suddenly he lifts his head up and looks right at me, as my bow sways just a little.  I try to calm my breathing when I feel a slight coolness on the back of my neck realizing that the buck is now downwind of me.  “Come on, come on just put your head back down so I can draw.”   I know I have him, all that hard work,

Wide Six Point

Wide Six Point

those early mornings, the scouting, the corn, the cameras, the scent removing sprays and showers.  He throws is nose up in the air, looks directly at me and snorted twice as he puts the afterburners on and heads for the next county.  Apparently I had a little body odor that morning.

Highs and Lows

Deer hunting, especially archery, is comprised of the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.  This was one of those lows.  I sat there and waited for him to return.  Maybe he was just over in the corner under the oak tree nibbling on some acorns.  Five minutes past, then ten minutes, then fifteen minutes, nope he was gone.   But wait!  There is

Tall Six Point

Tall Six Point

movement through the oaks.  Could it be, maybe, a second chance, not quite.  In walks another beautiful 6 point that I had seen earlier on camera.  He was taller just not quite as wide and did not weigh nearly as much as the previous buck.  Because he came from the wrong direction I was unable to get a shot.   But I stood up hoping that he would return back that same trail.  I have seen some bucks do this in the past.  They cruise down this trail to check out another field and return a few minutes later.

I was standing for about 5 minutes when I spotted movement once again.  With the deer moving towards me I went to full draw.  I try not to draw when a deer is standing still or extremely alert.  He must have heard or seen something because he stopped just before the opening in the oaks.  I held that bow for what seemed and eternity, shaking more and more with each second breathing heavier and feeling the start of a bead of sweat on my forehead.  Finally he starts to move again, slips into the opening as I gently squeeze the trigger on my release sending the arrow into the vitals.  That was where I was aiming, however because of the time that I had to hold the bow, my heavy breathing and the fact that I was terrified to make a sound an spook another deer, I made a little mistake.  I shot at a walking deer.  You must practice these shots if you are going to take them and I have never practiced a moving shot.  I should have let out a grunt and stopped the deer.

I got lucky though and hit the deer a little back and high striking the spine and dropping the deer in his tracks.  A second well placed arrow and the buck was down for good.  It made for easy tracking but the dog was a little upset as he loves the blood trails.

I was still thrilled.  My largest buck with a bow is a small basket rack 5 point and this was a beautiful 6 point that I couldn’t wait to photograph.   Even though I missed the opportunity at the bigger buck I was extremely please to get this guy.  Never give up hope because there will always be other opportunities you just have to be patient and play the game with the best of your ability.  Keep practicing different kinds of shots in all kinds of situations so that you can have some form of subconscious autopilot kick in when that buck of a lifetime tries to shake you out of the tree.  Don’t forget to bring your camera because Florida Photography can be breath taking.

Snook Fishing – Summer 2009

What would my Fishing Photography be without a short post and a picture of some of those beautiful snook my brother, Dad and I caught opening day September 2009.  This is some genuine Florida Photography.  We used a plethora of bait to catch these fish.  Some of that included Greenies, Sardines, Croakers, and Pinfish.  The biggest challenge was trying to catch a fish small enough to keep.  They were all monsters and with the slot size being 28-32 inches that does not leave many keepers.  We still managed to get our limit!

I try to place the image data in the caption under on every picture.  I believe this helps both me and the reader to become a better photographer.  The ISO above might have been a little too high for the bright sunlight and the shutter speed could have easily been slowed down to 1/500 sec and allowed me to hand hold the camera on a rocking boat.  The slower shutter speed would have allowed me a smaller aperture (larger f stop number) and thus a greater depth of field.  The Snook is tack sharp but the faces are a little soft.  Some fill flash would also have been a benefit.

To shoot with a Camera or a Gun

With my Florida Photography I sometime have a dilemma.  To shoot with a camera or with a bow.  That is sometimes a very tricky and tough question.  I have a passion for both hunting and photography.  I have a love of nature and always try to preserve my adventures.  Hunting is no exception.  My weapons or tools of choice happen to be the stick and string and the lens and shutter.  A Matthews Solocam MQ32 and a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a 24-70mm/f2.8 lense.

These first two pictures happen to be of a majestic 7 point in velvet that graced me with his presence this year.  I watched him last year as a spike.
