Artist's Description

With spring break just around the corner the beach at sunset is empty. Not even a life guard on site. This is about to change as thousands of collage students will descend on Florida for there break from the books. Yes it is spring break again, and Florida is ready with 75 degree temps and lots of sunshine. Oh yeah the life guard will be on duty. I hope you enjoy this "Day Before Spring Break" photo.

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!...
