While Zac and I sat on some rocks watching the ducks in the pond I noticed a peaceful scene. I have seen many pictures that use a rock in the foreground with a sprawl of water as the background. Those pictures have always interested me. But I have never really lived near water and when I had gotten the chance by waterside I wouldn’t really thinking of taking this type of picture, I’d only been thinking about relaxing or swimming. Something about this arrangement of rocks caught my eye. 

Being in nature is very relaxing, to me. If I’m not in the best mood a walk in nature can definitely change that very quickly. It is amazing how much of an effect our surrounding can have on our state of mind.

It is not always easy to get to a place where we love so sometime we’ve just got to close our eyes and imagine being some where that we imagine as peaceful.
