Peace and Quiet (here comes the sun)


This weeks inspiration is quiet. I took that to mean for me quiet in the sense of peace and relaxation. It is never noise free in my life. Not where I live and work.

It was timely inspiration for me. I need to spend some quality time at my peaceful relaxing place to unwind. The beach. I love it. It feels me with peace like nothing else.

The soft sand under my feet, the warm sunshine on the back of my neck (sometimes lol), the refreshing rush as the water rushes over my feet, the loud crash of the waves as the surfers wipe out and the soft tinkle as the waves rush over the shells (this is my fav).

It is definitely not noise free! But I find it a truly meditative place.

So beautiful! I can hear and smell the ocean from the photos and your description. I haven't even seen an ocean in so many years; I really need to remedy that.

I love the ocean and these images are stunning! I feel bad that we don't get to visit it as often as I'd like. The crashing waves...love it! My daughter also commented at how pretty your photos are. We recently went to the mountains to camp and I really enjoyed the sound of the wind rustling the leaves and just the peace and stillness that accompanied it. Hope you have a lovely day. ♥

I think we both get much pleasure and inspiration from the sea... For me it is very hard to be too far away from it.. even just not being able to see it from where I live now saddens me.. hahahaha.. Need to be rich and own a home overlooking it's beauty..

Love your shots today.... Hope your weekend is filled with calm beauty.. Although if you are in Sydney.. it will also be filled with gale force winds.. hehehe.. ciao xxx Julie [ps thanks for lovely comments]

Beautiful and inspiring images. The sea is a part of me. I feel at ease near the water. Have no idea why.

The beach is one of my favourite places to visit ... I could sit and watch the waves for hours! It's so relaxing.
