I am wife, mom and grandma and enjoy all three parts of me. What started out as a hobby became a full blown passion for photographing anything. I am involved in 10 microstock sites and 4 online card stores where I sell my images on greeting cards. I also sell my cards in 3 local stores. After many hours and sticking with my dream, I am finally making decent money.

    Wonderful capture Maria! I love the glow of the setting sun!!

  • Thanks, Mike. I was not the only one shooting pics tonight on the beach. A bride and groom, an engaged couple, and a high school student were having their pics taken too. I was the only one that was shooting a bottle stuck in sand….
