Featured Fifty Fine Arts: Patterns

O'Shea family

My name is Shannon O'Shea and I am an amateur photographer from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

I discovered photography in 2011 at the age of 58. My husband bought me a Nikon Point 'n Shoot and it was love at first sight. Not long after I graduated to my first DSLR, a Canon EOS Rebel t2i. This was followed by many lenses and camera gear than I care to admit. Photography has opened up a whole new world to me that I never knew existed.

I have met so many wonderful people through my travels with my husband, taking pictures all over the country. My special interests in photography are Wildlife, Nature, Landscape, Architecture and Urban & Rural Decay. I enjoy traveling, exercise & fitness and photo-sharing websites.

"Patterns" is a shot that I took of a sunset on the beach at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. It was taken on a very cold December evening in 2012. I personally think that winter sunsets are the best!
