Up an insignificant side track, a few chain from the road lies this peaceful escape from the world.
A wonderful place to watch the day wake up.

    I can almost hear the serenity of this place Garth…that peaceful ambiance.

  • Thanks Robert. The gentle relaxing sounds of the morning bush were all around, and a platypus even pops up every now and then to see what I am doing when go there.

    Superb artistry. There’s wonderful depth in this photograph and the sense of calm and bliss is purely evident by the still water. Wonderful composition.

  • Thank you Kurt, I had it printed at 30X20" on metallic paper and the depth pops right out on that.
