Egmont Key Island State Park, St. Petersburg, Florida

Egmont Key is accessible only by boat, so my fellow photographer and I boarded the tour boat and set out to photograph the historical island. It features a working lighthouse, gopher tortoises and ruins of an old army fort.

Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria, Germany, and King Ludwig’s Herrenchiemsee Palace

Stunning views of Chiemsee, freshwater lake in Germany near the Alps. On the Herreninsel island I visited Herrenchiemsee, "Mad" King Ludwig II's palace - and an exact scale replica of Versailles.
