This week, share a visual moment of blissful quiet.

It’s mere weeks before the end of 2017. Life is rarely boring, but for many of us, this has been a particularly hectic, nonstop stretch of months, full of breaking (and alarming) news interspersed with our own moments of personal struggle and excitement. So this week, let’s take a deep breath.

I recently went off the grid (well, almost; we did have intermittent cellular signal) during a long weekend up the British Columbia coast. It was only once I was there, surrounded by water, trees, and very few people, that I realized how much I needed a break from the noise of my daily routine. I doubt I could survive in such a peaceful setting for more than a few days — ultimately, I need that noise — but this photo of the Sechelt Inlet, where even the docked boats seem to be taking a quiet nap, has become my personal reminder to slow down every once in a while.

This week, share a photo that represents your take on “serene.” From landscapes to portraits (sleepy cats, anyone?) to a pleasantly abstract wallpaper pattern, any and all interpretations are welcome.

I look forward to a leisurely browse through your photos!

  1. It was on a clear day when we took a short cruise on Loch Ness.

    The lake is supposed to be inhabited by a prehistoric monster which remains as mysterious as the big foot.

    I stayed on top of the boat with a camera ready to shoot anything that looked suspicious in the waters to prove the skeptics wrong, but I was disappointed.

    Nevertheless, the beauty and serenity of the place made up for it.


  2. The pic looks lovely!
    Here’s my entry:
    Hope you like it!
