Challenge: Centered Composition II (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR DG IF-ED
Location: Key West, FL
Date: Dec 30, 2006
Galleries: Seascapes, Transportation
Date Uploaded: Jan 1, 2007

Taken during my New Year's Eve in Key West trip. Good times.

Here was my backup idea, but couldn't find an island with palm trees. This was on U.S. 1. If you haven't taken that drive yet, do it! I hear other than PCH, it is the best drive in the U.S. in terms of originality and beauty...
