Florida’s freshwater springs are an experience like no other. When taking your first step into the spring or making that breath-taking jump you feel the sharp chill throughout your spine. These waters are exhilarating, refreshing, invigorating and downright cold. Once the body acclimates the water feels clean and crisp.

Outside the water one notices the ambient sounds of the wind blowing through the trees evoking a sense of serenity and relaxation.

My perspective in exploring these springs has been to photograph from water level to illustrate the rich tapestry of color and pattern created by the magnified light coming through the foliage into the chilly, crystal clear waters. These are my visual representations of that clean, crisp serenity one finds while floating in one of Florida’s natural springs.
