Florida in the good ole summertime!

We see so many beautiful sights here in Florida that are rare in other parts of the country.

It’s not unusual for us to see eagles here all year long.

I took these photos right here in the neighborhood this week. And I played with one of my ocean photos in IPiccy.

I put a ‘reflection’ on my photo.

I still love Picmonkey but I’m using IPiccy quite a bit now, too. I like their fonts even better!

I’m joining Mary for Mosaic Monday

and Diane for Beautiful Sunday

and Sunny Simple Sunday !

Do you have a favorite photo editing site?

Gorgeous beach photo and Josie's favorite bird is the eagle. She would approve of your mosaic. I agree. PicMonkey needs to add some more fonts to their collection.

Diane Writes said...

Hi namemate! Thank you for linking up again. You are so lucky to see eagles in your place. For me, that is already a great experience. I also like pickmonkey. But In cases I don't have internet connection, I settle for a free downloadable software called Photoscape.

Have a great week dear friend!

I am, and probably always will be a Picasa girl....love it.

Don't have to think, and can edit those blog photos with my eyes closed.

Some nights I need that, lol.

I played with both today and wound up being back at good old Photoscape. I do love the neat fonts at the various sites.

Beautiful beach scene! Perhaps you could do something with the vultures to make them look good. I've given up.

Kasia Wolak said...

This is a lovely picture! And the eagles are so majestic! :)

Hugs,

Della said...

The eagles are beautiful! There are a bunch, and a huge nest at Kennedy Space Center, too.

The beach reflection photo is neat. I've never played with either of those editing programs...I'll have to check them out.

Hope you had a nice weekend!
Hugs!

Awesome eagle mosaic. It is great to see the eagles are making such a strong comeback. Your beach shot is gorgeous. Wonderful post. Thanks for sharing.

NanaDiana said...

How gorgeous- I don't really do much picture editing...yeah..I know..no kidding, huh? But I did find Picmonkey but have never tried any of the other sites. xo Diana

Sweet Bear Creek Whims said...

I love Picmonkey too Diane, you can do so much with your photos. I am going to go and check out this Ipiccy, thanks for posting it. I love your reflecting beauty picture, it is very pretty.

Tammy said...

Lovely images. I don't do photo editing -- collages sometimes, but that's about it. Hope you have a great new week. Tammy

Diane,

We have an eagle's nest in one of our cypress trees. She is sitting on her eggs right now. I get a kink in my neck looking up to see her. Ha.

Have a great day!

That second picture on the beach is very pretty Diane. I've never used ipiccy, but I've gone to save the site so I can try it out sometime. Have a wonderful week my friend!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Your photowork is lovely!!! Have a beautiful day!!!

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

Great editing, I also like both the sites you mention.

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi Diane,
I still have not ventured out into Picmonkey or IPicccy. I use my untouched photos for my blog. One Saturday I will sit and play with these photo editing sites. I love your beach photo, its really pretty! I could also use a new camera (maybe Santa will leave one under the tree this year)
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Your photos and editing are really beautiful! Love the beach scene. I don't have a favorite site, I don't do too much editing. I mainly use Picasa for cropping and color enhancing.

AntKaybe said...

I like Picassa but I am going to check IPiccy out too. Each site has it's pros & cons.

Cranberry Morning said...

Beautiful, Diane! Love the eagles! We have them here too, and they like to nest high above the rivers.

Oddly enough, I've only always done photo editing in my old (and I mean old!) PaintShop Pro 7. I always mean to try the others, but...

Thanks for the compliment on my Peaches & Almonds homemade soap post. :-)

Donna@Conghaile Cottage said...

Hi Di,
Your photo is gorgeous! I hope you are planning on framing those magnificent eagles? We see them allot here too. I think the population has really come back. It's always so exciting to see them. We even have them in winter visit our lake while it's frozen.
You are doing so well with Picmonkey. I am not brave enough to try something new...
Have a fun week,
Hugs,
Donna

Mary said...

That reflection of sand made a very nice photo even more interesting. Lucky you to see the eagles so easily.

Danni Baird @ Silo Hill Farm said...

Oh how beautiful! You and Della are going to have me dreaming of the sea every night! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog! Yours is wonderful!

Plumrose Lane said...

Gee, the last time I spent any time at the beach Seagulls where populating the airways, not Eagles! You're one lucky gal to live in such a gorgeous local ~ I sure do miss the beach.
On a side note, thanks SO much for stopping by and participating in my giveaway and for being my 1000th Follower, whoot!

Gorgeous! They say we have eagles around here but I've never seen one. And I have no idea what picmonkey or ipiccy is but I am going to find out - off on an adventure thanks to you!

kitty said...

Gorgeous photos, Diane!! We are going to be heading to Asheville. I know you are in Florida, but I thought you might tell me some places to visit.

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Lovely! I do little to none photo editing... and used picmonkey a couple of times.
