Visiting St. Pete Beach and Fort De Soto Park

I recently had the opportunity to spend a few days in the Tampa / St. Petersburg area in Florida. That gave me a chance to visit the pier in Fort De Soto Park at sunset. I’ve been here a few times before and always find it fascinating. You may recall another photo of the Fort De Soto Pier that I posted some time ago.

The beach and pier are a great location for sunset photography. For the photo above, I was standing on a boardwalk that extends from the parking lot to the beach, so I didn’t need to go tromping through the sea oats to get a good vantage point. As you can see, the boardwalk is well positioned to include the sea oats and small dunes as foreground elements while the sun is setting behind the pier. The result is several layers of interesting elements – dunes, sea oats, beach, water, pier and clouds.
