Truthfully, I get squirrelly if I'm not close to a body of water. The larger the body of water, the better. While I lived in Newfoundland, I was fortunate to shoot the ocean daily from my home. You can look out over the North Atlantic 365 days a year, and see something different each time. The colour of water changes perceptively with the amount of skylight, wind, temperature, and humidity. Love it!
