Photographer's Note

Spring water is water that is harvested from a natural spring. Unlike many forms of bottled water that are filtered and treated to remove impurities, natural spring water is considered to contain a beneficial level of minerals and is normally bottled directly at the source. In recent years, spring water has become available in a number of different retail outlets.
Part of the attraction of spring water is that it is often water that has moved to the surface from some type of underground water source. As such, the water is considered to be free of contaminants as well as unspoiled by the use of modern filtration techniques. Many proponents of spring water note that the liquid has a naturally refreshing taste that cannot be replicated by other types of water.
Many people assume that spring water and mineral water are the same. This is not the case. While both types of water are harvested from the hydrosphere, mineral water tends to contain a higher level of elements that are known as Total Dissolved Solids or TDS. While some people consider these additional minerals to be beneficial, others think of the extra minerals as being too much of a good thing. For persons who prefer water that contains trace amounts of minerals without altering the natural taste of water, spring water is a much more attractive option.
