"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever."

- Jacques Cousteau -

The quotation above from the famed French Naval Officer, Explorer and Photographer, Jacques Cousteau could not ring truer for me.

Growing up in the Mid-Atlantic Region has provided so many opportunities to be along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, Atlantic Ocean and the many tributaries that connect to these wonders of nature. It began as a child on those family trips to the beaches of the area where the fondest of memories were created. In many ways, my love for these environments is tied to nostalgia to some degree but the shear natural beauty of areas where the land meets the sea cannot be denied.

There is a reason why so many creative people are drawn to the shorelines. Painters, Sketch Artists and Photographers alike see a canvas before them and set out to capture their own moments in time to share for eternity.
