Greater Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay provides a wealth of locations to explore ...
This year's pictures were captured:
Circle B Bar Reserve 56%
Lettuce Lake 30%
Lake Parker 8%
Circle B is my favorite spot, not just because of the diversity of creatures and plant life, but because it has several different trails to please the palate. Depending upon the mood, I may wander along the trail that sweeps down to Lake Hancock, or one that wanders through the wetlands, or through the beautifully treed forest, or along the alligator trail. It's all there and never lets me down.
For a more sedate stroll, Lettuce Lake has a wonderful boardwalk that winds its way through beautiful treed and lakefronts, frequently opening out to wonderful expanses of view across scenic waters. There is a lovely sprinkling of wildlife and wild flowers blooming along the way year round.
Catching the sunrise at the North Shore in St Pete, or the sunset at Picnic Island makes for a wonderful experience. Or experiencing the wildlife and sunrise or sunset along either shore of Lake Parker, can also fill your coffers with interesting pictures. Or wander along the heavily shelled shores at Honeymoon Island, or even share a beer with my friend, Vel, down at Englewood Beach. You really can't lose with any of these options.
