I grew up in Michigan and spent much of my youth on the shores of one Great Lake or the other. In doing so, I absolutely fell in love with waves. When I visit beaches, like this one on the Gulf of Mexico in Alabama, I photograph waves, seeking over and over again to capture the perfect image. I’m not certain I’ve done it yet, but I do like this one.
Today I’m asking for your help. As much as I’ve always been fascinated by waves, I don’t know much about them outside of the knowledge every swimmer gains from experience. Hence, I’m seeking recommendations. Please tell me about your favorite books/web sites/ references about waves. I’m looking for scientific, literary, or artistic approaches to the topic. Thanks!
