This Moment - A Friday Ritual - Take A Hike


This Moment –

A Friday ritual. Photos – no words.  Simple, special, extraordinary moments. Moments you want to pause, savor and remember. “This Moment” is a ritual found on SouleMama’s blog which then traveled to Wee Man, Almost There by Sarah-Jane and Raising Amelie by Alejandro. Join the fun.















I'll be back in January with Photography Tips...I'm looking forward to it!

It was so peaceful - a great place for a lunch break during our hike. :)

Mari Sterling Wilbur said...

That would be fun - but the water is Very Cold. :)

Hello.
WoW! What a place to stop for lunch. I agree with some of the others, listening to the flow of water can have quite a mesmerizing effect.
Wonderful shots Mari!
