I grew up in a landlocked state. Landlocked by over 1,000 miles. I saw the ocean for the first time when I was 13, and I was one of only a few people in my class to have been to a coast when we graduated from high school. Perhaps this is why bodies of water are so fascinating to me. I love the water, and I love swimming (10 years on swim team + lifeguarding). I particularly love skinny dipping, but am too chicken to do it anywhere other than a backyard pool with a high fence and no lights. Which is probably how these photos were created.They are so gorgeous -the saturated colors, the suspension, the way the water diffuses the figures – it is all beautiful.
