As someone whose life has involved swiming, snorkling and scuba diving as well as volunteering in rescue and recovery on Lough Derg, I am very aware of the hidden histories such waters hold. Stories of lost lives accidental or despairingly, evidence of past times in its geology and wrecks of sunken boats. Each body of water holds millenia of hidden history. The ebb and flow of the tide constantly contribute to unearthing some of those histories .nnYet for me being at or in water brings such joy and hope and calms my soul..nnEvanescent Shoreline B 58cm x 45cm framednnMedium: Mixed media collograph on Fabriano.
