    Default The Sea: a photographic celebration of the first wonder of the world





    A new book - 'The Sea: a photographic celebration of the first wonder of the world' - explores the seas and oceans of the world. As the book's introduction says: "It is no coincidence that so many of the world's creation myths involve water. Out of this apparent void, all else is born. Not surprising, then, that the sea holds such a primeval fascination. We are, in so many ways, made of water."

    'The Sea' showcases some of the most stunning images of our oceans, at one minute wild and terrifying and the next gentle and calming. It has been compiled by Bluegreen Pictures, and features images from some of the world's best marine photographers. 'The Sea' (RRP £30) is out now and available from www.acblack.com.

    Beautiful photos! The sea scares me but fascinates me at the same time.

    No kidding, I've been living in land locked and/ or mountain states for most of my life. I love the ocean, I guess I'll plan to retire to one of those fabulous spots! Although no humidity and can't get too hot...oh, just remembered why I live in the mountains.

    LOL I guess you haven't seen Mallrats! It's a quote from the movie, then the little kid says, "A schooner is a sailboat, stupid head!"

    You are correct - haven't seen it. Besides, "schooner" sounds more expensive and snooty than "sailboat".
