9th May 2005 the tranquility

9th May 2005 the tranquility

I have the whole week off.
What have I been doing?
Not very much.
Sitting out in the garden,
catching up on a pile of books...
I collected Aiden from school,
and tramped up the edge of a field.
I've been meaning to get a close look at these stones for a while.
This reminds me a bit of the 'windows XP' background.

other sizes: small medium large

Excellent nature colours! I like this vivid composition! It deserves two votes.
Steven Jusczyk10-May-2005 05:59
Wonderful light and colors. Very nice image.
Guest 09-May-2005 23:34
A most exhillarating image :-0 Luscious to die for subtle lime and mustard tones.Gorgeous cloud plume among brilliant azure.And ominous charcoal sentinels to punctuate the scene with stucatto drama.Another vote for sheer impressive talent :-0
Susanne09-May-2005 22:41
Oh the lighting in this picture is just stunning. What a wonderful job you have done. This truly draws attention. Great great job. Voting.

Guest 09-May-2005 21:44 maybe microsoft will be paying you $100,000 US for a stock desktop image instead of some stock photographer. Damn, I am near speachless!

The greeniness. The yumness even...
laine8209-May-2005 21:17
What more could you want to do with your time with all that lovely fresh springtime all about....your right about the xp wallpaper.

The stoneliness
Marchael09-May-2005 16:18
Good thing you're over there. If this was in America there'd be plans for a new shopping mall in its place :-) Great shot!
jude09-May-2005 16:09
The stones look like people all facing the sky watching how pretty it is..
Catherine Normandeau09-May-2005 15:17
WOW! But it's very tough to look at it when you are inside, working on computer, doing my homework..

I just want to strap on my jet backpack and sail over it all. ;^)
Gayle P. Clement09-May-2005 14:28
I'm with Di though I must admit this looks so heavenly and pristine I'd be afraid to mess it up! This is a beautiful landscape and very well photographed.
Di09-May-2005 14:22
Beautiful rolling hills! I just want to kick my shoes off and run through them barefoot!
