Nature Photo Walk

Sawgrass Lake Park | St Petersburg, Florida

Another Nature Photo Walk and another local park. This time I am at Sawgrass Lake Park in St Petersburg, Florida. Sawgrass Lake Park, 400 acres in size, allows people to walk through one of the largest maple swamps on the Gulf Coast of Florida. The park’s mile-long boardwalk and half-mile dirt trail provide opportunities to see birds, butterflies, plants and animals in their natural settings within the most densely populated county in Florida. Herons, egrets, ibis, wood storks, alligators and turtles can be seen along the canals and lakes. Thousands of birds migrate through the park during the fall and spring, attracting birders and eco-tourists from all over the country.

Sawgrass Lake Park is the result of a unique cooperative agreement between the Pinellas County Parks & Conservation Resources and the Southwest Florida Water Management District.

This mornings Nature Photo Walk started of at 43 degrees with a slight breeze which made it feel colder. Due to the temperature, I didn’t expect to see many animals out and about so I started looking for light. Light through the trees, leaves, light reflections and shadows, whatever light I could find to capture.
