What I like about this photo, is that it stands between abstract and reality.
It reminds me of an impressionistic painting, with the brush strokes replaced by luminescent whitewater and the reflection of the sky.
What I appreciate about impressionistic paintings and abstract photos are the pure feelings they convey.
In this photo, my objective was to capture the feeling of summertime relaxation.
… at the end of a hot summer day, when the sun is setting and the sand still radiates heat, the simple act of walking into the sea is pure joy.
It cleanses me from my thoughts — from any and all negativity.
The simple act of swimming or paddling out on a calm summer day, cleanses cobwebs from the soul.
It is my hope that this photo brings you solace, and reminds you of the goodness and light that exists in our crazy, beautiful world.
