Catching the Waves

Maybe it’s because life on earth began in the sea, or because, as land-bound creatures, the seas are a place of mystery. Whatever the reason, the ocean has a unique hold on the human psyche. A recent Light Stalking post of amazing wave photos got us thinking about these things. Here is a small sampling of them, showcasing some of the many different ways that waves can be represented in a photograph, from abstraction to coastal landscapes to waterscapes. Beautiful stuff.
