Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

This week’s photo challenge is: Serenity. This is a favorite for me. I’m always seeking serenity, and I often find it. It’s not hard. Just look for a quiet place in nature and it’s there all around. It’s just a matter of stopping to “feel” it. Here are some places and things I found that give me peace.

I find a sunset over boats to be a calming vision.

Sea Lions are so good at relaxing, they make me relax.

An American Coot at sunset. I think the sight of waterfowl cruising along the water so gracefully is calming.

The sight and sound of Gulls (This is a Laughing Gull) is reassuring for me. I don’t know why, it just is.

Nothing gives me serenity more than a forest path. The colors and the quiet and the smells of green things fills me with bliss.

When gulls rest on the beach, they always face towards the sea. They look so Zen when they do this.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    I think these gulls are just careful that they don’t get slapped by a freakishly large wave.
    See – in the same picture you find Zen, and I find paranoia. 🙂

      Hahaha! I had also considered that they’re just waiting to see if another gull get’s some food so they can steal it from him.

      I guess the interpretation depends on mood. You me laughing, though.

    Nice choices, I’d have to agree with your thoughts on all–except the sea lions–that’s something I’ve never seen!
