Mountains made of water – “Liquid Mountains” by Dave Sandford


28-year-old Canadian sports photographer Dave Sandford from London, Ontario, has been taking photos for eighteen years now. As he writes on his website, he started pretty early. It was his father who gave him a camera when he was nine years old, after he became interested in hunting. His dad thought “shooting” animals with a camera would be better than shooting them with a gun. A clever man, I must say. 😉

For a month – and that’s what grabbed my interest – Sandford has been driving to Lake Erie, the second largest of North America’s five Great Lakes, several times a week, in order to document its high waves. These waves are caused by very strong winds which are very common in this region in the cold season. In Sandford’s photos, however, they look like mountains made of water, which explains rather well why the photo series is called “Liquid Mountains” in the first place. 🙂
