A very busy photography spring preceeded by a week-long trip to Cuba in February...

Welcome to the Paul Rebmann Nature Photography Newsletter June 2019 edition.

You may have noticed that this is only the second newsletter I have done this year. Various photography endeavors, including several backpacking trips, have kept me busy. In March I did a three day hike along the Florida Trail in the Ocala National Forest. Then in April I went north to Tennessee for a week-long backpacking adventure on the Cumberland Trail. Highlights from both of these trips will appear in future newsletters. Changing to a new computer and learning new photo software have also occupied my time. Other photography developments include a new wildflower presentation (see next paragraph) that debuted at the May meeting of the Florida Native Plant Society Pawpaw Chapter.

I will be presenting Wildflowers of Volusia County at the All About Pollinators day at Tomoka State Park Saturday, June 15 at 11am. This narrated visual presentation of wildflower photographs will take you through various Volusia County habitats in a virtual wildflower walk from the Atlantic coast dunes to the St. Johns River. Paul Rebmann Nature Photography/Wild Florida Photo greeting cards, prints and other nature image products will be available for sale Saturday 10am-2pm. For more information about this event visit the Florida State Parks website.
For details on this and other 2019 events, visit the Wild Florida Photo events page.

The big event for the first part of 2019 was that Virginia and I participated in a people-to-people exchange trip to Cuba with a Backroads tour group in February. As of last week(early June 2019), the people-to-people exchange category has been removed from the list of US approved reasons to visit Cuba, as have the popular cruise ship stops.

The above image shows the Enrique Estrada Fire Station in Matanzas, Cuba. Estación de Bomberos Enrique Estrada is the oldest fire station in Cuba. Original construction was completed in 1900 and after recent renovations is now serving as a museum and apparently also still as a working fire station.

Other photos from our day in Matanzas include artwork in the Hermitage of Montserrat, the colorful and mural-covered wall around the zoo, sculptures along the riverfront and of course an old car. Those images and more, plus information about these subjects can be found in the latest Paul Rebmann Nature Photography blog post on Matanzas Cuba.

2019 is the 500th anniversary of the founding of Havana. "La Habana 500" is a photograph I made of street art by aolivera that was near the casa particular where we stayed the first and last nights in Cuba.

The current Wild Florida Photo feature is Osceola's plume.
Other recent featured photos at Wild Florida Photo include pinewoods milkweed, common green darner dragonfly and Mexican pricklypoppy which I photographed in Cuba.

Thank you, and I hope that you enjoy my photography.
