SO BEAUTIFUL!YOU PICS GO STRAIGHT TO THE HEART!SAW YOUR COAT OF ARMS - INTERESTING MY HUSBAND'S FAMILY HAD ONE MADE AS WELL, I JUST PUT IT UP I THE OFFICE...
Thank you for the lovely comment Sarah I really do apreciate it.Sometimes I think I have a hankering for the past ...the days of horse and sail when everything was done at a more leisurely pace.The Motto and Coat of Arms are part of that old tradition.
hauntingly beautiful image - and you know, i think from the past - from the past of us all - we are better able individually and collectively to come to know our present - our SELF - love the image!
oh, and i don't feel foreboding at all from the image - just soft surrender to the stillness - beautiful!
Yes... but the dark thunder clouds in the distance threatens the stillness..
but...i see the dark thunder clouds in the distance as softly moving over the stillness, just blanketing it in still more softness and stillness - encapsulating keeping safe not threatening - ah, such is art in the eye of the beholder, right?! beautiful image!
I always feel that large inland lakes and meres give off a mystical stillness and baleful aspect which corresponds with my sombre image of the mythical Avalon.But I do agree it is all a personal view.
