Water is essential to life, yet too much or too little becomes the opposite. Many people take water for granted, while other’s day-to-day lives evolve around trying to obtain it. Water is often associated with relaxation in the form of spas and beaches, and also with working up a sweat when carrying out water sports. Water often heavily features in travelling; beaches, waterfalls and lagoons are top tourists hotspots.
I’ve put together a collection of my water photos from around the world:

Having grown up in Greece and in a coastal suburbs nonetheless I’m so used to the presence of water and particularly the sea. Every summer during the weekends I just HAVE to go swimming! I can’t imagine myself living in a city that isn’t near the water! When traveling abroad I like visiting lakes and rivers too! Love your collection of water photos! 🙂
That sounds so amazing! Especially the thought of calling off in the water after a hot day during the summer 🙂 Lakes next to mountains are one of my favourite places to see when I’m travelling 🙂
Another beautiful compilation of photos, Marcella!! The floating palace in India is simply gorgeous, and the frozen water in Wales is crazy!! You know that I love to be near water, whether it’s a beautiful white sand beach or just a river!! Being near water just makes me feel calmer. 😀
Thank you! The top of the mountain was soooo cold and windy, I think that’s why the ice kind of stuck out because the wind made it form that way. And the floating palace was equally beautiful 🙂 I know what you mean, water has such a way of calming people, doesn’t it?
you’ve got great themed post!
Thanks so much, Tanja! I really love putting them all together 🙂
That water in France looks so gorgeous and clear. Beautiful pictures!
Thank you Courtney! It was such a beautiful place to visit 🙂
I love your posts like this!! Wow, just wow! These pictures are stunning! When I think of water I usually resort back to the beach, but you’ve captured it in so many different lights here! Amazing!
Thanks Lauren 🙂 They are my favourite posts to write, I think!
