A Dark Cloud Came Over by Mark Ross

Peaceful people on a Fire Island beach looking for colored beach glass and unusual stones. Click once on image to enlarge.

This image has been nominated for the prestigous Pay it forward group by Geraldine Lefoe This is what she had to say about it: “I love the mood created in this image by Mark Ross – the lighting and treatment are superb.” Geraldine also commented personally as follows: Amazing art Mark – came across your work somewhere else then found you on Redbubble. I love the way you have captured these people each in their own world as though no one else exists. Your processing is superb.

Thank you for nominating this Geraldine! I’m very pleased you like it.

Something catches my eye and I photograph it, always with the intention of reworking it into something I can call my own. My thinking: It’s not what you look at that matters but what it is you see and how you see it. That’s what matters. That’s how the artist shines through.
