Weekly Photo Challenge – Peaceful

I found this beautiful pond in Penticton, BC during the summer.  The owner took great delight in it.  She visited it every morning just to set herself up for the day.  I found it to be a most restful place with the Koi Carp swimming under the surface, the colours of the water lilies and the gentle trickle of water falling across the rocks.

Here’s to those wonderful summer days again in Penticton.  Want to join me?

    It makes me want to walk across that bridge and sit in the middle and listen to the birds and sounds of nature.

      Hi Corrie
      It was a wonderful place, right on the side of a mountain. A lot of work had gone into creating it, and it was worth it.
      Thanks for visiting.

      Hi there. Thanks for commenting. The pond is an amazing place. I should probably try and photograph it in winter to give a comparison. I agree with the colours. The wooden bridge, created from a fallen tree on the property, is wonderful.

    Nice shot – the orangey red of the carp add to the whole image so much

  15. That is a spectacular shot, Kate! Oh, to have a water pond like that – that would be a great way to start the day, sitting there, gazing at the water trickling and fish swimming, while sipping on hot coffee. Even a great way to end the day. Imagine dusk, the sunsetting, and a cup of hot tea. 😉 Great capture!

      The location of this pond gets the setting sun. It is really spectacular, and the owners/creators do exactly what you have described, each morning and evening. What a way to be at peace.
