The spiritual connection humans have with water can go unbeknownst to most. However, an entirely different community longs to be beneath the surface, searching for many different immersive experiences. Scuba-Diving is a recreational sport that is often considered extreme due to the nature of the environment in which scuba happens: in the vast open waters. To some, it is the quiet experience away from the chaos of the surface; to others, it is exploring new places that only a handful of people have seen. While under the water, divers witness a whole other kind of inner-space in which we can see the effects we have on our world. It triggers an awareness of our impact on preserving its natural resources. Viewing through the eyes of those who seek adventures beneath the surface, we recognize the intensity of humans’ effect on this vital element that surrounds us in our daily lives.
