Wainui Water

Wainui Water

I thought about calling this something like watersnake. The light strike on the surface of the water reminds me of a snake traveling towards you. It was an experiment to see how to display the above and below water worlds.

I am lucky enough to live close to water where you can see down to the bottom. Apart from after a storm when the sand gets churned up, the water is usually very clear. If you peel away the glistening coat, and look underneath the surface it is as beautiful below as it is above.

Having been fortunate enough to swim in water all around the world I know that this is not the case everywhere. In some really beautiful places it is really sad to find that the sparkly surface sometimes hides a layer of plastic lurking just out of sight.
