Water, revered by the Greeks as one of the four primary elements, is the cornerstone of existence on our planet. I live in Florida, a state surrounded by water and where water flows through the middle of the peninsula, through the Everglades on its way to the ocean as one of the world’s most important ecological systems. Water in Florida water can be both life-giving as well as life-threatening.
When I came to Florida, I was looking for its natural wonders, equivalents of the Grand Canyon or the Rocky Mountains. I found the magnificent nature of Florida in its weather, water, sky, and vegetation. The images in this collection are all about the beauty of one of those elements — water. Many of the images were taken in Florida, but they also include oceans from around the globe and seashores, lakes, and rivers — water wherever I found it.
