A Skywatch Friday Tribute to Klaus

This past Saturday I attended a photo memorial walk for Klaus Peter. Klaus was the creator of My World Tuesday and Skywatch Friday. He passed away in August, leaving a big hole in the nature photography world in Florida. A group of his close friends put together a photo meetup at one of his favorite parks, Circle B Bar Reserve, in Lakeland Florida. We met early in the morning in the dark and hiked out to the best part of the lake to get sunrise pictures. This was my first sunrise at the park. I rarely get up that early in the morning but knew I had to do this because Klaus always said sunrise was the best time. I had to stop letting sleep get in the way of photography. After a specatular sunrise, we all headed to the nature center and watched a slide show of Klaus' nature pictures as well as funny pictures of him with his friends. There were several members of his family that came from Germany for the event.

For a beautiful post and more pictures on the event, please visit one of Klaus' close friends, Michael, to see his post.  Michael's post
