Waterfalls, Waves, and Water (Part One)

I'm in love with water, though I can't pinpoint why. Maybe it's the variety of different colors (the depths of shades, the glassiness of the greens and blues, the murkiness of the purples deep down below), the clean smell of sea salt or fresh water  on the air, or the soothing roll of waves, big and small, as they lap at my feet. Whatever it is, I resonate with water and waves. So to highlight this passion, I wanted to start a series of photography posts on the various different places we've been and how the water looks and changes in those places.

Each location has such a unique feel and personality... No one picture is the same!
