Water makes up approximately 71 % of the Earth’s surface and 60 % of the human body. No wonder it is essential for all known life on Earth! This wonderful, wonder-filled, contradictory substance is our July theme. I hope you will join us and share your water images in the Mortal Muses Theme Pool.
Not only is water crucial for life in general, but it plays host to a lot of different water creatures, as Vanessa Simpson and I have found: sparkle seal by Vanessa Simpson. I can’t get over the happiness and light in this image.
Water can be quiet, still and moody as Anna shows here: I just love this moody storytelling shot of Anna’s.
The happiness in this shot by Vanessa Snow is intoxicating.
Water has no colour, and yet it takes on whatever colours there are, thanks to the magic of the light. The water was as colourless as it appears in this image – I didn’t cheat and convert to black and white in post-processing – but if you look closely you can see tiny reflections of colour.
What part does water play in your summer? Do your kids run through the sprinklers on the lawn, do you go kayaking, swimming, is it raining – or something else entirely? And if you live in the Southern Hemisphere, how is water a part of your life in winter? Show us in the Theme Pool – we look forward to seeing your images!
