Sometimes, to fully appreciate the remarkable forces of this planet, we must find a way to quietly stand in awe of them.
Meet Dave Sandford, a professional photographer from Ontario, Canada. Over the past few years, he has been heading out into the frigid waters of Lake Erie to photograph the stunningly elegant violence and grace of its waters.
His breathtaking photographs of these liquid peaks are a beautiful reminder of our planet’s extraordinary power.
Dave Sandford’s work reminds us that nature is a powerful and astonishing force. It can never be tamed, and it does not belong to us.
To be in awe of our planet is to fully appreciate it’s richness and beauty. If ever we need a reminder of why it’s still an amazing world, we need to look no further than the natural world outside our door waiting to be explored, cherished, and preserved.
