Serenity Around The World

val disere skiing france9
A serene scene in the French alps.

Peaceful, tranquil, quiet. Who doesn’t enjoy all of those three adjectives? It sums it up to serenity. I’ve found the most serenity to be in nature and to be provided by nature (think sunsets and sunrises.)

Just looking back through these images to those moments in the past provides a sense of serenity, imagine being in the moment itself.

  1. So many choices! I like the first one best, being a lover of mountains, but I got a laugh out of the carpet in the car/van. 🙂
