Peaceful’ Photo Challenge 2012


Peaceful, Jan 13th.

My idea of peace is—

New Forest Ponies

Stream in New Forest

 

 

One beautiful sunny day, my wife and I went for a walk through the nearby New Forest. We eventually came upon this peaceful scene, and luckily I had my camera. Theresults are as you can see. Others were taken but I think these pictures represent the theme well. But they also have a memory within as well, which makes it doubly good.

So to all that view, please enjoy and comment.

  4. Very peaceful. I feel I must whisper, so I don’t scare the horses.

    • Thank you for your comments and interest, the New Forest is on the south coast of the UK. If you
      Google map Brockenhurst or Lyndhurst, Hampshire England UK. You could be lucky to see two very beautiful
      villages.

  21. Nature is by far the best way to find Peaceful. It is so tranquil
    to walk among it. The silence wraps it’s arms around you.
    These are perfect for the challenge.
