There is something peaceful, almost spiritual, about the ocean, the play of light on its surface giving it a surreal quality, but whilst it is beautiful it is also unpredictable. It is complex and enigmatic, infinitely changeable but remaining the same. I am in the water; I become part of it, inconsequential at the whim of the tide and waves. The ocean flaunts its power as it takes control of me, control of the camera. Engulfed by waves, the sea merges with the sky, distorting perspective, causing feelings of isolation and uncertainty. I am overwhelmed by its menacing strength as I realise how small and powerless I am. Love the ocean. Fear it.
