The beauty the of the tone colour shift from beach sand, across shallow water, into the deeper waters of aquamarine, then deep navy blue, are to our minds, the most alluring of all natures great colour tonal treats, expressing a kind of fresh, cool, vibrant sparkle, unmatched on land.
Bright sunshine over a sand bottom, and a few meters of clear water, does it for me.
My fondest memories recall some of the Maldivian lagoons, the waters around Lizard Island in Australia, the San Blas atolls, parts of those Greek Islands, and the spectacular waters of Raja Ampat, particularly heavenly at Wagag.
To hang out in the extreme beauty of an aqua overdose, even if just for day, is a visual treat to be sought after and savoured. Those opal hearted colours, iron out wrinkles in the psyche with grace and ease.
The last time you found yourself just saturated in wall to wall aqua water was either too long ago, or due again very soon…
