Water, as I live on an island I am surrounded by water. But that is not a bad thing, for me it actually is something I really enjoy. I love water, I love to be on it, in it, next to it, I even made it my job to work with it. As some of you know I am a marine biologist and that is my dream job! Since I was a kid, back in the days when we lived on a Canary island (oh yes I did the living on an island part before!) I am fascinated by water and everything that lives in it. I am also in that age that “Free Willy” was one of the most inspiring movies I have watched as a kid. When I was 14 I decided that I want to be a marine biologist and ever since I worked on that dream. Now 15 years later I am one and I am currently working on getting my PhD in that field.
So naturally this is not just some assignment for me. This is me expressing my love to this element. I could have easily said I just take some shots from my archive (I think I have a ton of water pictures), but I wanted to take some fresh ones and present them to you.
I am living in Europe which means the new assignment arrives here at midnight, so each morning when I get up I check my e-mails and when I saw today’s assignment I decided took take my camera with me on my short walk to work and take a little detour on the dike. It was sunrise at that time and I really love the colors I got!
After work I spontaneously decided that my morning pictures weren’t enough and I did another detour on my way back to work, this time along the ferry harbor. The ferry was just about to arrive and I went really down to the water and then took some low shots (my camera is perfect for that as it has a screen that you can fold out and turn).
Today’s assignment was to take a picture of water and play around with the orientation of the shot, so that is what I did. I will leave you with my gallery of pictures 🙂
