Lost beneath the waves of the ocean.

I am in complete awe & am goose bumpin' from head to toe...

if ever there was a defining reason why a thumbnail doesn't do a brilliant photo justice, this is it!

I looked at the thumbnail & was intrigued & love the title & beautiful words - then clicked to see this in its FULL glory, and was really really impressed with the sheer genius of this capture - Man, it's so crisp and clear and the angle/view is superb!!!

The waves/book/shadows & sky are caught so perfectly

I would have to say this is the BEST photo i've had the honor of faving this year thus far Nod

I like the parallel between the turning pages and the ebb of the waves.

looks like the turning of the pages was taken at just the right time, very honest, very real...

I like the concept and the double-decker wave type thing there, but I kind of wish the book were a little thicker. It'd kinda make it feel older, more... something, insert a good word here.

Great shot.

This is probably one of the most meaningful photos I have ever seen on da,i really don't know what it is but this touches me,maybe it's the lonliness of the book or the beautiful waves behind it,+fav,you really need to make a DA print out of this.
