Welcome to this weeks photo contest! The theme is serenity. Last week's theme was movement. I do love energy and movement running through an image, but this week I want to focus on the other end of the spectrum. This week I'm asking for your best serenity themed photographs. Any photograph conveying a sense of serenity, peacefulness, and/or relaxing calm is invited. So hit me with your sunsets, cozy creeks tucked away in peaceful forests, or anything else you interpret as serene. Enjoy! Rules: Be creative and have fun. You may only submit one photo per contest. Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place. The contest runs for one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread.) At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible. The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).
