Photographer Arnaud Lajeunie's series 'Water Meets Color, Color Meets Water' depicts several breathtaking images of gradient tie-dye waves crashing along beach rocks.

To create these stunning water images, Lajeunie used sugar-based color dyes to tint the color of the ocean water. The dyes are mixed to create a gradient-like effect upon the water's surface. The waves drastically change from deep navy blue to bright pink or neon orange to create a dynamically striking visual. As the waves crash vigorously against rocks and return to the sea, the viewer is left with a feeling of disrupted serenity.

This imposing man-made interference of coloring natural ocean waves in a way speaks to how humans are constantly compromising the environment for their own personal benefits.
