The dependence of all life is the living sea.

The Sea Photo Contest Contest Entry 
While walking on the beach I knew I had to photograph the life I saw there before me. "To me, the sea is a continual miracle; the fishes that swim, the rocks, the motion of the waves, the ships with men in them. What stranger miracles are there?" Quote by Walt Whitman. This photograph shows the sea alive with living creatures being nourished by the living moving waves of the sea. We are drawn to the sounds and smells of this life giving miracle. A healthy planet depends on healthy oceans, as you know our seas are overfished and polluted by plastic, mercury and industrial and human waste. The carbon they absorb from man-made greenhouse gas emissions is making them more acidic, making life impossible for creatures such as coral and shellfish. Global temperatures are rising and warming our oceans and threatening their ecosystems ? and ours, too. Our seas support much of all life. Up to 80 percent of all living creatures are found there and produce more than half our oxygen; they absorb heat and help to regulate temperatures on land. If we don't take care of our seas we risk everything! Planet Earth has five great oceans and 113 seas. They represent 72 percent of the surface of the globe, and together they've been an endless source of inspiration for humankind. The oceans and seas have been changing lives since the dawn of time. Humans have always experienced an intense relationship with the oceans, pouring feelings into the seas since ancient times. We've done it through philosophical thoughts, inspiring speeches, self-analysis, confessional quotes, and universal sayings. I have been in love with the sea since I saw it for the first time.
