When Land Meets Water Around The World

victoria bc canada13

Land and water, basically what our planet is made of. When both of these meet, something magical happens. The scenery somehow becomes beautiful and useful for mankind too, whether for leisure or work. They are two completely different things, yet they complement each other so well.  They create a connection that humanity seems to love. It also comes in different forms such as lakes meeting parks, and cities meeting oceans.

I hope you enjoy these photos of land meeting water from across my travels.
