Lens-Artists Challenge #187 – Water

We welcome Anne as our host this week! She has chosen Water – we cannot exist without water, and we admire its beauty and love the many ways we can interact with it. I am sending some water thoughts from a rainy Sweden. Water, water everywhere…

Roni Horn is the creator of the Library of Water (Iceland) in the opener.

Water is the driving force of all nature. – Leonardo da Vinci

I am merely an insignificant creature on a microscopic blue dot in the vastness of space.

– Abhijit Naskar

I always welcome this feeling, it gives me a refreshing insight and reminder of my place in this world. The endless sea is there to show me.

The sound of water is worth more than all the poets’ words.

– Octavio Paz

Because no matter who we are or where we come from, we’re all entitled to the basic human rights of clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and healthy land to call home.

– Martin Luther King III

Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.

-Lao Tzu

We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea … and you don’t believe in miracles? – Unknown

I always reflect upon life while walking in nature, I guess many of us do. A Miracle, yes, she is, Mother Earth and everything living on her. I am grateful to be here for a short second.

Yesterday I learned how to make droplets out of my images…so, from my garden I am sending my dewy autumn aster and some clear droplets for you to reflect upon too.

” Within a single drop of water, an astrologically large number “sextrillion or 1.67 x1021” of molecules exists. The size of the tiny water molecule is approximately 0.275 nanometers or 2.75 Angstrom (x 10-10m). Water is the most abundant substance on earth.”

Finally, a favourite image from the Galápagos Islands. My dream of endless, warm water with an abundance of life!

Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth… these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women’s empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all.

– Ban Ki-moon

Please show us your thoughts and images of water. Go through your archives and retrieve some memories or make new photographs this week. We’re looking forward to seeing your images. Please remember to use the Lens-Artists tag and link to Anne’s original post.

Thank you for participating in Sophia’s beautiful challenge of “Low Light” last week. Next week we are pleased to have Karina of Murtagh’s Meadow as our guest host. I wonder what she has in store for us…

  3. Ann Christine,
    I just LOVE the first photograph. It’s ethereal in a heavenly way.
    All of your slections are magnificent and unique. The wonders of a
    majestic waterfall with sounds that must have been very vibrational.
    This challenge seems to have brought out the most increduble pics.
    Isadora 😎

  4. Everything in your water galery is superb and wonderful Anne-Christine! I was really mesmerized by the waterfall and the Galapagos photo.Every photo makes me yearn to see them.
    Thank you for the inspiration!

  5. All such lovely images of water, but I think my favourites are Seljalandsfoss (I assume?) and the Galápagos shot, partly for the happy memories of my own travels they triggered. And the droplets, which intrigue me – how do you do that?!!

  6. This post is crammed with extraordinary images. At each one, I paused, said ‘This has to be my favourite’, and then moved on to the next, where I said it again. I’m keeping this post to explore again later.

  7. Hmmm…..now I need to figure out what the droplets are an how you made them! I loved them and I especially loved your choice of quotes this week with delivered a powerful message. Loved your post Ann-Christing

  8. Hi Leya

    I like all of your selected quotes and the photos are all captivating, but that waterfall is absolutely breathtaking. I can’t tell the location, where was it taken?

    I’ve updated my page to include your link, I had published before yours hit the streets as they say.

    Here’s my slender offering for the Lens Artists 187: Water topic.
