“Caryn B. Davis has absolutely captured the essence and soul of Connecticut in her new book Connecticut Waters. Caryn, through stunning photography and inviting narrative, tells the story of the best place on earth. She has inspired me to see the places I have missed and has made me fall more in love with the ones I know. This is my favorite book about Connecticut ever.”
- Tom Whidden, three-time winner of the America’s Cup, CEO of North Sails Group, and a member of both the America’s Cup and National Sailing Halls of Fame
"Caryn Davis may look through the lens, but she takes pictures with her heart. In her new book, Connecticut Waters, she beautifully captures the shoreline we all love."
- Geoffrey Paul, Paul Foundation
"Davis must have had fun making this book which is bursting with enthusiasm and respect for the topic. Davis looked at these scenes with appreciation and it comes off the page in the composition and focus. She has produced a celebratory book you can share with others, in an impossible task to explain your own fixation and thrill of being on or near the water."
