A view of the gulf fishing pier from behind the snack shop.
A big boat coming around the corner near the fishing pier. This is the main channel where all of the boats come in heading to the port of Tampa.
A great blue heron watching the Sunshine Skyway Bridge as a storm moves in.
Turtle nests were roped off all over the park.
Looking out at the north beach marsh.
Pano of the northern tip of the beach.
A storm was moving in across the north beach.
Standing on the bay pier, the Sunshine Skyway Bridge is partially hidden by the storm.
It was nice being at Fort Desoto park before the storm came. The threat of rain had kept most people away. There were a few people out fishing on the pier but the beach was almost empty. Not many birds either. So I walked around the pier for a while and enjoyed the quiet.
I’m in awe of these beautiful skies!! Favorites are the pano shot and the photo of the heron. The lighting in the heron shot is amazing!
Love the photo of the heron with the storm clouds!
A beautiful area and even with ominous dark and threatening clouds, they are great shots.
Absolutely gorgeous images! Really stunning! You were there at the perfect time!
Beautiful pictures! Happy weekend!
