About the Photographer


Mark Bottoms


Mark is an Air Traffic Controller living in Dothan, Alabama. He is new to photography but you would hardly know it from his sensitive eye, and his keen sense for composition and color. His images offer a sense of tranquility and peaceful beauty to all who have the opportunity to view them on Google+. I appreciate his letting me post one of his images here on The Angels Wear Fins. Thank you, Mark :)


  1. That's a very cool photo -- the cotton below, the clouds of cotton above. I had a friend who lived in Dothan, Alabama long ago -- how wonderful to be reminded of the town.

  2. "cotton candy," indeed! what a magical photo :)

  3. oh oh
    cotton shining on the stem!

    i use to love to pick it
    as it seems to me
    like magic
    on the vine...

    lovely photo
    of an enchanting sunset.
