Resting by the water's edge


Reflective
Laval, Quebec, August 2007 [Click to embiggen]


You know how it is when you visit extended family: spend enough time under the same roof and eventually even the Dalai Lama himself would blow his top. I love them all dearly, but even I need to get away, alone, every once in a while.

So I took a walk beside the water and tried to find scenes that brought me peace. I hope this brings you peace, too.

Your turn: Does it? Why?

One more thing: Happy new month!

All water scenes seem to bring me peace.

It brings peace because it is outside... the boat on the edge makes me think of upcoming adventure... the unknown of what is to happen sets the mind free!

It's very peaceful. The still waters, the static image of the boat....even though the diagonal lines of the rock usually make one think of dynamism - it is calm. I like it.

I'm with daisy...being by water always brings me peace. Wonderful composition...

It definitely has a peaceful vibe to it. I guess it's the water.

We solitudinous creative types need our alone time to survive.

I think for family gatherings, etc., someone should write the script for the part everyone usually plays and switch it up! Then people would see how they really are and wouldn't it be just hilarious?!?!? ;-)

Very peaceful and calm. I want to sit in that boat out in that water.

I'm not sure why, but it doesn't bring me peace. I think it's the blue scatchy boat?

But I'm glad it brought you peace. :)

I find the beach whenever my heart is sore. Boats, too, suggest adventure and new beginnings to me.

Your photos are incredible, Carmi! It seems no matter the subject, you are able to give a different view of it.

Peace and I find one another along a shoreline. I love the reflections, and how the shoreline constantly changes.

This is beautiful shot Carmi. The blue is stunning against the grey rock.

Oh, I like this! I love the color on that boat!
