Underwater Peace

Photo taken by contributor Britta Froehling, a 39-year-old woman living in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. Britta was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, Substance Abuse and Eating Disorders, but has overcome most of these afflictions. She finds peace in making art, photography, and nature.

About this photo: “I recently discovered snorkeling with my underwater camera, and my oh my, am I hooked! As soon as I stick my head underwater, I experience peace, bliss and wonder. I even came across this ‘winged fish’. A very inconspicuous looking brown fish, but when you get close and disturb him, he opens up these magnificent ‘wings’.”
