Two Oceanids on some unknown shore enjoy the last days of summer.

The Oceanids were sea nymphs, or to be more precise, they were among the three thousands daughters of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys. These lovely creatures inhabited different bodies of water, whether they be springs, lakes, seas or oceans. In our modern world, they usually make their appearance in the late summer, when the last bursts of warmth and sunlight bath the northern hemisphere. Once the weather turns cooler, they will disappear to different and secret haunts.

Despite our modern, technological and historically ignorant world, there are still many mysteries to be discovered and explored, and the world of the nymphs remains one of those.
