Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom by J.L. Ramsaur Photography

One of the best, and more thrilling rides at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom is this roller coaster called Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. An out-of-control train speeding through the Himalayan Mountains while trying to avoid the Abominable Snowman. I am not a big roller coaster fan…but did actually enjoy this one since I promised everyone in my family that I would ride everything while we were on vacation (except the Tower of Terror!). Definitely one of the must ride attractions while at Animal Kingdom… Technical Information: Camera - Nikon D5200 Lens – Nikkor 18-300mm Zoom ISO – 500 Aperture – f/4.2 Exposure – 1/2000 second Focal Length – 32mm The original RAW file was processed with Adobe Camera Raw and final adjustments were made with Photoshop CS6. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” ~Jeremiah 29:11


Econlockhatchee River

Blackwater quietly flows through the suburbs of Orlando and Oviedo as it makes its way to the St. Johns River. When you walk along this river you forget that you are less than 10 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. 

The tannic water, produced by decaying leaves in the water, is perfectly safe, and actually gives the fish in this river brilliant colors. When the water level is down a bit the river is perfect for fly fishing.

Pioneer Village - Shingle Creek in Kissimmee, Florida

The Pioneer Village is comprised of a permanent collection of authentic structures which once upon a time stood in different areas of Osceola County. They were carefully relocated to our present location and gently preserved to demonstrate how life was once lived before our modern times.

I ended up exploring this place which was merely 6 miles away from the house. It was definitely worth it, so glad I decided to go! Photos taken with my phone.
