Ring of Fire

By Andrew Colantuono

Andrew writes:  “I was born and raised in Englewood Fl. my whole life. I have taken up photography as a small hobby of mine along with scuba diving, hiking, and kayaking. So I naturally love taking pictures of nature and landscapes which all of my submissions are. I am attending SCF to earn some basic classes to transfer to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for a Bachelors in Aeronautical Science, and save money by taking the classes at SCF. This is my last semester and I plan on joining the air force as a pilot when I graduate from ERAU.”
