Peaceful Days

For me this time of year represents peaceful days in preparation for the coming changes of foliage and weather.  It is a time to reflect on the year and look forward to the next and thank God for allowing me to walk through life and enjoy his wonders yet another day.  Photography has been a calming intervention in my life and even though I have enjoyed photography for about 40 years now-the last 4 years have been special-it has helped me stop, assess life for what it is and take time to enjoy the ride.

Thanks for looking.


Peaceful pond near our home. our lives are like a pebble dropping into the pond-we may make a ripple or a wave which is soon dampened to the reflective beauty we see here.


I really enjoy watching the deer in the backyard.  We often travel far to enjoy and photograph wildlife and yet return home and they are right here for us to enjoy!

Until next time.

What a beautiful creature. I haven't seen a deer in person only on tv. Hope I'll see one soon! :)

Jim, you live in a lovely spot! I'm glad that you are blessed to have wildlife nearby as well.

Both are absolutely gorgeous images. Photography is a release and therapy for me also. So, I can completely relate to this post.

Wonderful thoughts and photographs, Jim.

I find that I too really enjoy the local wildlife more and more, sometimes even more than what I see on the trips I make.

Good post Jim, I have had calls from my wife while away photograping animals to say guess what is in the back yard. It does not happen often for me since I live so close to the city.

Beautiful reflection photo, and I love the doe and fawn. How great it would be to have them in our backyard!
