"There is a rich timelessness to the Florida landscape that is best seen in the soft light at the beginning or end of each day. It is found in the glow of primeval oaks backlit by a fading sunset or the cool, watery reflections of the sunrise as it breaks the horizon over the Atlantic. There are days that deviate from the bright, hot sunlight so typical in our state to lovely stormy, atmospheric wonders. These are the days and times that I see the true beauty of Florida...and I am able to glimpse the legacy of the wild natural place that Florida once was." --Lyn Asselta
