The beauty of the lingering death is about changing perspectives. I am used to looking at the water with the play of light on its waves. Now I wanted to record this play of the sun with the wind on the waves under the water. Turn the usual perspective "on the water" into "under the water" and show the play of light waves from another unusual perspective. At the same time, the light changes at every moment, and so every shot is a document of a past moment that seems impossible to recreate.
