The Challenge

Time for a calm, quiet image, a safe harbor where boats go to spend a peaceful night or laze about for a day, gently rocking in the sun. We need to see enough to recognize the place as a harbor.

Image must be in the group to be eligible:>)
I try to notify artists when their images are not in the group or do not fit the guidelines, but I can’t promise. Please double-check your image to be certain you’ve entered it into NAUTICAL – WAVES OF JOY.

So . . .

Pick a wonderful image of a safe harbor and post it – you may be our next winner:>)
