Artist's Description

You just can't beat a Florida sunset at the beach!!! After a bad day this was a great ending!!! This trip to Howard Park, near Tarpon Springs Florida was incredible. It was snowing in Chicago and New York on this day, and here it was like being in Paradise! With calm gulf water and gentle breezes on a nice warm day. With the sun setting I just wanted to enjoy this moment as I always do! I hope you enjoy the "Ambience Of The Gulf"!!!

About Marvin Spates

Marvin Spates

Hi my name is Marvin Spates, and I am a fine art photographer. I love shooting landscape and nature photos. I live in Tampa, Florida. So most of my photos are from this area--Tampa Bay is so nice year round and the beach’s are always a drawing card. We have fantastic sunsets and sunrises no matter what time of the year. Most of my work is with color, but from time to time I will do black and white. I love color and it shows in my photography. I have been shooting photography for over 20 years and have won my share of photo contest both local and national. Now it is time to share some of my best shots with you. I hope you can envision some of my work in your home or office, with just the right framing and matting. Thanks for the visit!...
