The waterfront in St Petersburg is a great spot to watch or photograph a sunrise. There is a long stretch of waterfront that you can follow while looking for good subjects to capture. Some of my favorites include the Dali Museum, the fountain almost across from the Dali, the Sailboats at the marina, or groups of palm trees. I really miss having the pier as that was always one of my favorite subjects also. I am looking forward to the new pier and seeing what I can capture once it is finished.
