A nude swimmer glides through hauntingly green water. Her body, except her head, is submerged, distorting her form. She bisects the image nearly in half, although at a slight angle. The refraction of the light in the water creates a chaotic pattern in the water and unpredictable highlights and shadows on her body.

The protagonist’s body is outstretched, with her toes pointed behind her and her arms in front of her. The water around her is largely undisturbed. Small ripples radiate from her head and arms. Her slicked hair foams into a cloud around her shoulders underwater.

The water is an inky green with blue highlights that give it an iridescent quality. The darkness contrasts sharply with the subject’s pale skin and auburn hair. The water does not reveal its depth or what may be lurking below.

At the left of the image, the water is especially dark, while on the right are highlights and psychedelic patterns. She is floating between darkness and light.
