Blogger Community Photo Challenge: Tranquility


(click the banner to go to the Challenge and to view the other entries)

This week's challenge is "Tranquility"...a very ephemeral thing. It's not something you can describe in concrete words...it's a feeling more than anything else. Not everyone will agree with everyone else about what's tranquil, or at least the first thing to come to mind for one person will not be what a second person will think of right out of the box. I have a ton of photos that I consider tranquil, but this is one of my newest, so I thought I'd use it. It's a photo of a wildlife viewing area on Sandy Hook, part of the Gateway National Park System--a wonderful place for viewing wading birds. Hope others find it as tranquil as I do.



The same day, I took the following photograph. I always find flowers a tranquil subject...this is no exception:

I love that you chose a wooden walkway. I can hear my steps and the birds around me. I know this is a place I would thoroughly enjoy.

BEAUTIFUL!
