The gentle roar of the North Sea. A sound that even seasoned sailors respect and closely listen to, for as to navigate its water soberly. Surfers also listen to it messages, as they to are constantly in the hands of her mercy, never daring to dishonor her temperament. The wind carries her howl to far reaches, knocking over objects not stalwartly rooted. Nothing can stand in her way, as she meanders over and around all obstacles. How does one meditate on this roar? Will I've presented a solution. By immortalizing the moment, in space and time, in a visual feast of color and movement.
