Focus on Life Week 6: Quiet calm...

Now this is my kind of prompt - thanks Sally!
For this week's photo assignment we will focus on the quiet calm of the world 
as it re-energizes around us.


(Photo edited using Picasa's Lomo-ish tool.)

There's something about the village church, grazing horses and the subtle, muted palette of early Spring that instantly calms me... 

You wouldn't know looking at this image that so many parts of the UK are being battered by 100 mph winds and terrible floods... Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected...

A small stone...
The horses know they are on holy ground,
Bowing their heads, giving thanks,
For green shoots, and dry fields.

PS I forgot to add - there's still time to enter this weeks Giveaway here. I'm gifting this book, and a happy to post anywhere worldwide :-)

  4. What a peaceful scene. Makes me wish I was there. There is such devastating weather everywhere these days. I'm praying for everyone who has had to deal with the craziness.

  5. Am loving your peaceful view and wishing I could share it. The wind and rain is crashing down again in Wales and although it's almost the middle of the day, it's just gone incredibly dark again :( I do hope this weather passes over us all soon - I'm sure pretty much all of the UK has had enough now! More calm pictures please - to remind is there is life beyond storms! xx
