Pacific Ocean Photography | Coastal Fine Art Prints

This is a collection of fine art seascape photography by Max Foster showcasing the beauty of the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific Ocean is the largest and deepest of Earth's oceanic divisions. It extends from the Arctic Ocean in the north to Antarctica in the south and is bounded by the continents of Asia and Australia in the west and the Americas in the east. At 63,800,000 square miles in the area, this largest division of the World Ocean covers about 46% of Earth's water surface and about 32% of its total surface area, making it larger than all of Earth's land area combined.

The centers of both the Water Hemisphere and the Western Hemisphere are in the Pacific Ocean. Ocean circulation subdivides it into two largely independent volumes of water, which meet at the equator: the North(ern) Pacific Ocean and South(ern) Pacific Ocean. Its mean depth is 4,000 meters (13,000 feet). Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, located in the western north Pacific, is the deepest point in the world, reaching a depth of 10,928 meters (35,853 feet). The Pacific also contains the deepest point in the Southern Hemisphere, the Horizon Deep in the Tonga Trench, at 10,823 meters (35,509 feet). The third deepest point on Earth, the Sirena Deep, is also located in the Mariana Trench.
