Travel Theme: Stillness at sunset

Ailsa’s theme this week, is ‘Stillness’. Returning home at sunset on Friday, we walked outside to enjoy the stillness of our backyard. There wasn’t a breath of wind, and the water was as smooth as a millpond.


The brilliant red flowers of the Flame tree across the water were perfectly reflected in the water.


The cloud reflections gave me such a topsy-turvy feeling, as I stood gazing down at them.


There wasn’t even the slightest rustle in the trees, and not a single bird or creature was visible. All was peaceful and eerily silent.


As the sun sank peacefully down to sleep, there was no great fanfare of colour this time, just a mellow, hazy glow.


To see more ‘Stillness’ images, visit Ailsa’s beautiful post.


Wishing you all a very happy week ahead.

  1. Sylvia,
    This photo essay is beautiful. I can feel the stillness (with the exception of the mirrored clouds, which stirred my vertigo back to life πŸ˜€ joke*)
    Enjoy your Tuesday!

  3. tutto Γ¨ immobile
    ma i colori sommessamente
    il canto della bellezza della natura
