I live in St. Pete. What do you want to photograph? Good scenics/trees/water/wildlife can be found in most local parks. Have you been to Myakka? Veteran's Park off the causeway to Madeira Beach is nice. Sunken Gardens offers photo ops. Lake Seminole Park and Sawgrass Park have gators 'n birds. Wheedon Island off Gandy has plenty of trees, water and critters. There's a weird little park in Largo (can't think of the name) that has a beautiful pond with many birds. Fort DeSoto is good. So, what are you looking for? Let me know if you would like to go somewhere and shoot sometime (I don't hike very far!.
