And I'll get it's a beautiful place in summer. Promise you'll go back so we can see.

SouthernSass said...

That is such a pretty park and I would love to see what it looks like during summer!

Jack said...

I will also cast a vote for a return during the brighter days of summer.

Birdman said...

I bet it is. Nice composition.

George said...

I think I'll wait for summer to visit. It does look like a neat park, however.

is that a lighthouse in the distance?

i would have to say my guess is that this place is crowded in the summertime.

aka Penelope said...

Doorways and entranceways of any kind add so much to the scenery. There is something magical about going from one side to the other.

Lesley said...

Oh yes, I've been there and it is indeed very busy in the summer.

Rose said...

I would love to see this in person...during the week. I bet it is busy in warmer weather...

Pagan Sphinx said...

Nice shot. I like that arch.

Jacob said...

I like the way you composed this...leading the eye out to the water and beyond.

Boy, it appears chilly there.

Judy said...

Seems like there is a Victoria Park in every city and village! I like the view of the water from this one!

RedPat said...

Great shot - love how you framed the lighthouse!

Jessica said...

Very pretty. The arch helps frame the shot nicely. If you have the time, stop by my page at www.adventureswithjessica.blogspot.com and check things out. New followers are always welcome :) Thanks!

Hi EG...you are a riot! Google didn't help you much...

That Wendy's is near Hwy 200 and 34th Avenue, right by the Paddock Mall.

Hwy 200 is also known as College Avenue...it starts up toward downtown where it is called 10th St. It runs west southwest for about 15-20 miles...toward Citrus and Hernando.

If you're looking for Stone Creek, go west from Hwy 75 on 200 about 6-7 miles to SW 80th Avenue. Stone Creek is about 3 miles north on 80th Avenue...

Farmchick said...

I would love to be there...in the summer!

Randy said...

Looks cold but your right it's probably full of swimmers in the summer..

Genie said...

This is a magical photograph...one that beckons the young couple to come here to be married. The arch would be the perfect spot. The way you composed the shot is lovely. The viewer couldn’t ask for anything more. Nice work.

Miss Kodee said...

What an amazing angle. I have stood in that spot a few times and never thought to do a photo just like this. Very nice!

Randi said...

The view is wonderful and the composition is perfect.

Lindy MacDuff said...

Gorgeous image and I love how you've framed it.

Arija said...

OOps, where has all the water gone?

No-one even ice fishing there. Is the ice too thin to use the lake as a playground? In places like Holland, everybody and his dog would be out there with their skates on.

Much too lovely a place to be shunned in winter.

Ann said...

we have a victoria park and market here. They play cricket there.

Evelyn said...

Looks like a nice place.

Carolyn Ford said...

It's gorgeous in the winter too...but, boy does it look cold out there!
