A Celebration of the Sea

It's June, it's summer and this Happy Monday we're dreaming of the sea

It's officially the first month of summer as well as Great Outdoors month so this Happy Monday we're celebrating one of the best forces nature has to offer: the sea. We've scoured far and wide for some of our favourite ocean snapshots and destinations – from Nan Goldin's beautiful depiction of a woman drifting calmly in a bright blue ocean to the magical vilage of Cinque Terra in Liguria, where multicoloured houses are piled high upon a clifftop overlooking the Mediterranean. The sea is renowned for its calming effect, and we hope these photographs make you feel as happy and relaxed as they make us.

Happy Monday! #anotherhappymonday
