Egmont Key Lighthouse, Egmont Key, Florida

The Egmont Key Lighthouse is located on Egmont Key (Egmont Key State Park) a short distance across the water from Fort Desoto which is south of St. Petersburg, Florida (Tampa Bay area). It was built in 1858 to replace an earlier lighthouse that was damaged by a hurricane. It remains an active aid to navigation. The only way to access the light is by a private ferry from the Fort Desoto Park, however on the date I was at the area the ferry was not running, hence my photos are somewhat distant and taken from the fishing pier adjacent to the fort. Photos taken in March 2011
