Ailsa’ Where’s My Backpack Travel Theme for this week is peaceful.
Peace comes from within but there are some mental pictures which help us to achieve inner peace.
I like taking peaceful landscape photos, meaning the kind that make you want to quiet your busy mind, brew some hot tea and just take a deep breath.
In my superficial understanding, the common elements in my peaceful landscapes seem to include some of the following:
Serenity and calmness
Nothing exciting / disturbing
White color – from clouds / mist
Green color – from trees / grass
Blue color – from the sky or water/ sea
Wide open, unobstructed view so you can see forever.
Other qualities which are difficult to describe
I must admit that I still don’t understand what exactly constitutes peacefulness in a landscape picture. This will be part of a never ending search in my future photography.
