H20 Around The World

cannon beach oregon11

I don’t necessarily enjoy being in water, but I definitely enjoy looking at it. Fountains, waterfalls, beaches, rivers, lakes, rainy days… They all make up beautiful and peaceful sceneries. Water definitely has a calming attribute to it.

Like any element, it can be destructive too, but we won’t talk about its negative side today. Whether you like being under, above, or away from water, below are several photos of H2O around the world.
