Inspiration & Relaxation
As I prepare for the holiday tomorrow, with all of the hustle, fireworks, crowds, and noise, I wanted to take the time to reflect back at a more peaceful moment from the past.
In this image, which was taken near the falls in Banff National Park, I can clearly remember the sense of peace that I felt when I sat down on the river rocks and took in this gorgeous scenery. Big namaste moment for me as my senses were being filled with the cool air, the mild breeze, the sound of the water rushing over the rocks in the river, the sight of the undeniably beautiful scenery before me, and of course, the over powering sound of the thunderous falls just around the bend.
How I wish, in the heat that surrounds me in Florida, that I could return there again for another dose of relaxation and inspiration. So often, we get so wrapped up in our lives, that we forget to stop and really take it all in - the beauty that surrounds us. So for me as I ready for the events of tomorrow, I will remember the most important aspect of photography for me - the ability to transport myself back to wherever it is I want to be - perhaps not physically, but definitely mentally.... and you know, sometimes that works just fine for me. :-)
Wishing everyone a Happy 4th of July! Thanks for stopping by to view and for all of your comments. I might be a big biased, but I think I have the BEST flickr friends and contacts ever!
