Shadows in the sun

Huntington Park . Winter 2008 . by cc
A hauntingly beautiful view of the park in the afternoon. click photo to enlarge

The sun finally came out Monday afternoon, winds blew away the gloomy clouds.
Rays shining through tall trees towering from a distance, casting long shadows on the emerald field.
Walking along the familiar path, relaxing myself in the lush atmosphere,
I detected a mist of sweetness in the air.
The storm didn’t come, it’s a good day after all.

Share with me, my friends, your relaxing moments of the day.

    My relaxing moment of the day would be trekking. Walking among the trees, hearing the cicadas sing, the twitter of the occasional bird and smelling the sweet breath of the forest air.

    CC: The sweet scene of the forest is really refreshing!


  3. Daryl Says:

    My relaxing moment would be when the world is sleeping. That would be very early in the morning, just as the sun is about to rise, sipping a cup of coffee and catching up with my emails; or late at night, turning off all lights except my table lamp reading a book while listening to my favourite CD. And then to think, and thank God that I exist.

    CC: Sounds good! One of my relaxing moment too, except it’d be after the world has gone to sleep at night. The stillness at night gives me a sense of enlightenment and peace.

    The trees are framed nicely, the branches are perfectly in focus, the shadows cast a pattern on the ground!
