These are some of my favorite compositions. These photos feel so alive and dynamic. The issue is, I end up with dozens and dozens that are all so uniquely different and equally interesting. A difficult edit, but these feel refreshing and revitalizing to me. It’s knowing how cold the water is, what it feels like, and that first shocking splash.
