A massive thank you to Zina Deretsky in California, who got in touch because she is a wild swimmer who loves reading water.
Zina is also a professional illustrator and has been kind enough to share her observations whilst reading water in San Francisco Bay area.
This satellite image shows the nicknames of some of the local features and the Zina’s drawing below beautifully illustrates the tidal effects she has read in the water.
You can explore more of Zina’s work on her studio website.
Thanks Zina! A signed and dedicated copy of How to Read Water is on its way over the Big Pond!
