Spring Mix

“The effect is entirely natural but decidedly surreal as the swirling tannins of the Santa Fe River mix with clear spring water,” writes John Moran, who captured this view of a diver at Devil’s Ear spring in north Florida. It’s estimated that the state is home to more than 900 freshwater springs.
