Tropical Beach Scenes

I'm back to my "good old" Palm pictures again.... The pictures are new, but the subject is "old". And I have to tell you again: I love palm trees!

Single palm at Smather's Beach on a cloudy day

That looks like rain out there on the horizon!

Smather's beach is normally empty on a day like this....

...except a sleeping beach bum who is dreaming there on the bench, probably about some better days he had in the past.

There's nothing wrong with Palm Trees. At least you have them. I would love to be near such a beautiful beach. Very nice photos...and website as well.

Thanks Michel for your compliments to my blog and website. I try to bring a variety of everything from and about Key West at the blog.

I'm glad you liked the palm trees.

Love the palm and beach pics. From what I remember, that is actually a man-made beach, but they have done a nice job keeping up with it.

I also like your commentary on the beach bum. SO many people in Key West are there because they have no where else to go to "fit in." That's why I love the Conch Republic...a place for wayward souls!

Hi Al,

you are right about the beach. They say the sand is from the Bahamas and the palm trees are planted.

And we have also street bums, not only beach bums. Actually we have too many of them, sitting everywhere over town too.

Thank you very much for taking your time and to write all these nice comments to me. :-)

thanks for posting these wonderful pictures... I'm heading down to Key West this week for a 10 day vacation and will be taking photo's of course...and your photo's have inspired and helped me with conceptualizing some shots!

Hi thoughtdujour,

Thanks for your nice comment. I guess you will have some better and more sunny days for shooting pictures on the beach, than I had when I did those photos. You're very welcome to Key West!
