I'm practicing my photography skills by taking pictures of the canal behind our house. The first picture is another picture at sunset. The second picture is taken from the opposite direction and shows the east end of the canal and the Banana River. I live in Merritt Island which sits in the Indian River on the east coast of Florida. On the west side of the island is the Indian River and on the east is the Banana River. We are about 10 miles south of the space center.
