|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I've recently moved to the Tampa area and was exploring near the Hillsborough River on my mountain bike this morning when I took this. This is not the river, it's just some standing water as the result of recent rains. This area had become quite a swamp. I thought this reflection of the trees (Taxodium distichum I think) was quite beautiful though and wanted to keep the image of it.|

I can guess the type of trees here....Taxodium distichum. Taxodium are swamp loving,deciduous conifers,that are common in the southern USA, particularly florida.I have one here at home.Those wide,fluted trunks are a giveaway.
A very nice image David.These kind of shots,with limited light available can be tricky.You've done well though.
