~ Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #52: Serenity ~

Serenity is subtle


The sensation enters my eyes, ears and nose, spreads throughout my mind and body – fills me with peace and asks nothing of me.

Gentle Sundown

Sometimes it comes to me in soft pastels with gently lapping water, or suffused in mist.

At other times I experience profound tranquillity surrounded by vibrant living color and rushing water.

Whether by a stream, at a lake or the ocean, the sound of water always soothes me. As a tribute to my mother, who passed in 1996, I built a pond and waterfall in my back yard. She too, loved the sound of water, the scent of fresh air, and the beauty of nature.


When I’m home, I find serenity sitting right here.

    For me the genetic link is from my dad who loved nature as I do. Whatever the reason it’s a gift to appreciate it. Your images are perfect for the challenge. Especially liked the misty scenes
