Fort De Soto Park, Pinellas County, FL

Those of you who are my FB friends might have seen some of these shots before. My good photographer friend, Paula Showen, and I ventured out to Fort De Soto Park recently for a day of shooting.

The park’s 1136 acres covers five small islands, or keys, just south of St. Petersburg, Florida. There’s an abundance of water and wildlife, as well as well-kept amenities like restrooms, playgrounds, campsites and pavilions.

The park is named after the old military fortress whose remains still exist inside the park. Although the fortress was built near the Spanish American War times (around 1900), the fort was named after Hernando De Soto, a Spanish explorer who lived in the 1500s. read more
