    An arid sand desert as far as the eye can see ... covered with crystal clear water. A strange creature travels alone in the midst of this lifeless world. This is perhaps the future of humanity in the face of the consequences of global warming.

    I love it Marc. This is so beautiful. I love the mystery of someone "walking" under the sea. Your photo feels like a still frame from a dystopian sci-fi movie. I hope this is not "the future of humanity in the face of the consequences of global warming."
