Water is a powerful element of change. It causes mountains to erode, and is causing major cities to drown. Water itself is capable of change: liquid, solid, vapor. A peaceful source of beauty and joy, or a raging torrent.

For this exhibition, we would like to see the many moods of water and its effect on humans and on the earth.  All capture methods and processing are welcome.
