I was very lucky to spend a week in St. John, USVI in mid-December with a group of 9 friends. One morning, while most of the group headed off to snorkel, I stayed at the house and wandered the nearby beach taking photos. I took this series of the water, looking to create some abstract photos, and was happily surprised with how they turned out. I hadn’t expected the brush stroke effect which I like very much. I also like the color contrasts, and the circular flowing lines.
