The Simple Life

I have lots of pictures to go through which can be overwhelming, so I decided to post a peaceful picture. I took this at Newport Beach around sunset either just before the storms rolled in or in between storms.


I decided to add this to Watery Wednesday which has always been one of my favorite memes. Checkout Watery Wednesday here.

When I see such lovely peaceful pictures, I really miss my sailboat. The subtle colors of the sky are so pretty and I love the lone gull.

A boat, a bird, the sea, and the freedom to sail away...(sigh...) Simple and perfect!

One of the most peaceful images seen in these days. The bird in front of the boat is perfect.

What a pretty picture! Love the lone bird and the sailboat and the way the water seems to blend into the sky.

Simple and elegant - peace is resource that must be enjoyed and shared.

What a wonderful place to spend some time.

Rebecca said...

So peaceful and serene

Jacob said...

Excellent composition, James...the sailboat is in the right position and the bird is perfect, and I really like the way the water and sky blend together...I don't see this as so peaceful or serene, though, 'cause the water appears to be moving - anticipating a storm, as you suggest...

Lovely and very peaceful.

Hi James, Thank you for nice comment on Venice flooding. I have to tell you that it was one of the most inspiring photo trips I have took. There was endless endless endless views no matter where you turn. Talk about reflection opportunities in the city surrounded by water :-)
I highly recommend it.

Oh to be the lucky sailor! This photo is just beautiful. Speaks volumes.

Your photos, though very different from Mr. Little's, are also gorgeous. That sunset shot below makes me want to be on a patio overlooking the ocean with a superb glass of wine in my hand.
