      Lovely light reflecting from the ground onto the stones. I really like this shot. Where is it?

      Now mapped, Barbara. . . thanks for your attention. You caught me in the act of uploading and adding details! Hope you enjoy. Same spot as my nearby watery and woodsy pictures. . . a wonderful park, and surprisingly within a mile of the beach!

      I had to come back for your answer, Melinda. Thanks! That coquina rock is beautiful in the sunlit setting.

      Thanks, all.

      Thanks for that observation--I hadn't really noticed it myself, although the light was strong, but filtered by the trees, for the most part, that day. . . M.
