BRENT PENNINGTON Underwater view of a submerged stump in Gouldsboro Lake on the afternoon of 23 July 2015.

The problem with having an underwater camera is two-fold: first, finding locations where the conditions align to make underwater photography possible (with a positive outcome likely), and second that any photo taken underwater automatically looks interesting, making it harder to weed through them and be discriminating about what’s a good photo, and what’s just a photo.

These are stumps, submerged in Gouldsboro Lake.  I love the refraction lines of sunlight that trace across them; I live the pond plants rising up in the background.  It feels like mermaids should appear any moment.

But I’m still not entirely sure if these are good photos, or just underwater photos.
