Hi everyone,

I dont know if like me, you enjoy looking at beautiful pictures. I find certain pictures I have come across from time to time are so fantastic, I can look at them for ages. There is a lot of beauty in our world and often we are too busy to stop and look at it. Pictures however capture these scenes so we can enjoy them at our lesuire. I love seeing sunsets/sunrises in particular or forest scenes. Over the past few months I have downloaded some from various sites which I would like to share with you for I do feel at peace when looking at them. I hope you will like the ones I will post over the coming days and if any one likes to add to them, I would love to see them, Brian

Hello Brian, 

What a beautiful picture! Reminds me of The Tree of Souls from the film Avatar (not sure if you've seen it or not?) 

We've moved this thread to the Inspiration topic area of the forum as it seemed more fitting. 

Personally, I look forward very much to seing what you have in store to share here as, like you, I find a lot of peace in looking at beautiful nature inspired pictures. 

Have a great weekend and best wishes to Mrs B!

Hi Sueanne and Jenn,

Glad you both liked the picture. All I know it is a famous wisteria tree in Japan thats so big they had to put a lot of supports to hold the branches up.

Jenn, thanks for moving it where I wanted it but I made a mess of it, so thank you.

Take care ladies and I wish you both a peacful weekend, Brian.

Good morning folks,

Here is another picture for your enjoyment.

Whenever I see pictures like this it reminds me of my trip to Canada to meet my father and his family for the first time and of the sights we saw when dad took us up into The Rocky Mountains. It brings lovely memories flooding back, Brian.

Brian, I think yew trees are fantastic. I had a big one when I last lived in Yorkshire. We had to cut it back as it had reached the house but it grew back in a beautiful way. This picture is fantastic.

Hi everyone,

Thanks Annabel.

Here is todays picture..

This one reminds of my dad for he usd to drive trains like this up through the Rockies. When we went out to see dad twenty three year ago, My youngest brother took us on a short ride up in the cab of one of these deisel locomotives and it was pulling about a mile and a half of trucks behind us as he wanted to show me what dad used to do. It was an experiance I will never forget, Brian

Brian,

Here is one of the places I go to in my head when I'm in hospital awaiting or undergoing various tests and treatments. I returned there recently in real life to recharge my batteries.

I'm not a great photographer but I think the sense of tranquility comes across - to set the context it was taken in the afternoon with a temperature of 32C in the shade.

 

Enjoy

Dave

Hi Brian

This beautiful picture reminds me of the first signs of spring, which I am awaiting eagerly. I know we haven't had too harsh a winter, but I am not a fan of the cold!

Thank you for posting these scenes for us to enjoy:)

Good morning everyone,

Thanks Jane, glad your liking the pictures.

Here is todays offering.

I love Autum when the leaves are changing colour. Years ago I was driving home one evening and I saw a sycamore tree where the leaves were changing colour (like in the above photo) It was just as the sun was going down behind the tree and it gave the appearance of hidden lighting in the tree. It really was a beuatiful sight but as usual, regretably I didnt have a camera with me to record it. Brian.

Hi everyone,

Thanks Jules.

Here is todays picture.

Autum is my favorite time of year as I love looking at the many colours of the autum leaves. I could look at this picture foe ages and I love the reflection of the trees in the water. The other reason I love autum is because my chestnuts will soon be in the shops ha ha. Brianitus is still alive, Brian

Hi Steven

Take it easy(emotional rollercoasters are often difficult to ride). Good that you now have a date for Mum's funeral though fully understand your feelings towards it.  She had a long life to celebrate and no doubt you will have plenty of support around you. Draw on it (I certainly held on to many hands during hubby's service and afterwards).  Your forum buddies are here when you need to talk. Sending peaceful thoughts and comforting virtual hugs at this reflective time.  Jules xx

Hi Jules = thank you so much. Yes - it does feel funny being 'held' = but thats whats needed. Thank God I have Anne - I would be lost without her. Poor old Mum - she was a dear. Its slowly hitting me.

Thank you so much
