Water covers 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, but chances are there’s a body of water close to home that’s also close to your heart — a fjord that strikes your fancy, a beautiful bayou, or a river that gives you shivers.

Grist asked our Facebook fans to send in photos of their favorite watering holes, be they bays or brooks. We received more than 40 submissions. Wow! Such lovely pictures! Invite us on your next hike/swim/canoe trip, OK?

Our favorite photo — and winner of Grist’s “Follow a Drop of Water” photo contest — was a winter scene of the Taunton River in Bridgewater, Mass. Congratulations to Grist reader Corrie Collin, talented photographer and water lover! Click through the slideshow to see some of our other favorites.
