Artist's Description

If you have seen my photos before then you know that I shoot a lot of my photos late in the day! Here in Central Florida the late sea breeze will cause thunder storms and heavy rains. At times the storms are sever enough to cause waterspouts. Well I was again in Apollo beach to see if I could get a shot of a waterspout. And again I did not get one! But I did see this strange sight, the city of St. Petersburg seem to float above the bay!!! Yes it is just an illusion cause by the warm water and the cool air from the thunder storms. St. Pete got hammered by this storm with lots of rain and lots of lighting!!!! This is just one of many photos I got this day. The pelican in the shot was fishing near me so I let him be in the photo. I was also treated to an unusual sunset. This day I did not get rained on until my drive home. I hope you enjoy "The Floating City"!!

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!...
