Lusting Beauty: Words vs Picture

It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words . . .

I took a short quote from William Golding's Lord of the Flies as an exercise, matching pictures found, as best I could.

"Ralph did a surface dive and swam under water with his eyes open; the sandy edge of the pool loomed up like a hillside. He turned over, holding his nose, and a golden light danced and shattered just over his face."

Do any of them outshine Golding's 41?
