A sense of peace

Have you ever noticed that some photographs cause you to experience a physical reaction? For me, the sign of a truly special photograph is when my first reaction is to sigh and a sense of peace descends over me.  Here is a case in point.  This is one of the many sunrises that I photographed on our vacation in South Carolina, and if I’m having a bad day all I have to do is look at this scene and all my troubles melt away.


If any of my WordPress friends out there are having a bad day, I hope this photo will bring you peace, and if not, I hope it just brings a smile to your face. 🙂

    This one is really really worth framing!

    • Thanks Dor!! I might just do that. You know what else I am considering doing? There is a company (can’t remember the name right now) who will print out your blog entries and bind them in book form. I might do that at my one year mark. I think it would be fun to look back on years from now. 🙂

        Funny you should mention this. I’m doing just that right now – Vol #1 of 100 pages. Can’t think of the company, but will let you know how that goes.

    The ones that we look back on again and again that bring us joy and peace are a true treasure. There are some photos that we immediately love and promote to the inner circle, but it’s odd how some that may not affect us so drastically upon first impression may grow in our maturing sensitivity and become cherished favorites. I have a number of both, and am working on a special portfolio of them. This is really a lovely sunrise. I can hear the gentle surf and the gulls…

    • Thank you!! I know exactly what you mean, and I finally fulfilled a dream I had just recently where I framed some of my favourite photos to hang in groups on two walls of my living room. I had the frames for years but never seemed to get around to it. Now, every time I walk into my living room I grin from ear to ear because they look so beautiful!!

    The grins are what it’s all about! I have a number of decades-old ones displayed, and I still love them, but I need to mount some more recent ones and rotate them. You’re helping to inspire me to get around to it!
