Mystical Seclusion

Inside myself is a place where I live all alone, 
and that's where I renew my springs that never dry up.  
~Pearl Buck


Greer Springs
One of the most magical places I've ever been blessed to visit.

Wow, stunning shot Chas! It's so awesome hearing from you... you've been missed.

Did you use HDR on this photo? The water looks like it, but when I look again it doesn't. I'm tired, I'd best just get to bed! lol Nite Chas, take care and God bless.

Been (quite) a while since I visited. Nice to 'see' you again and look at your photographic expression of your thoughts. Beautifully done.

[may I complain about that awful (and illegible) word verification ? ]

darlin said...

I had the same thing happen on this end as well, I couldn't even read the first part of the word verification so I tried the voice, that was worse! lol Nothing like a late night challenge!

Whew this one looks easier!

It is not HDR... just set my aperture high ~ which was tough~ without a tripod and in the dim light.
I only got one good shot out of many many many :)

but thanks!!!!!!

and sorry about the verification.

hate that :p

Places like this do have their own magic and peacefulness. This is a lovely shot that captures that bit of wilderness. I can almost feel the chill of the spring now!

Reminds me of a place I stayed at Glencoe in Scotland.

Simply Beautiful Chasity!
good to see from you again!

I like it. Photo and quote.

Is that quote from a Pearl S. Buck? If so, it's possible it is the same lady - who is from our/my home area.

Neat (interesting) story.

Chas you did a magnificent job, one good one is totally worth the many, many not so good ones. I look at those ones as practice. :-)

No worries about the verification, you have no control over that... just saying and agreeing with Rick, I tend to agree with Rick a lot, it's either great minds think alike, or we're both whacked! lol (Rick just kidding. :-))

Have a wonderful day!

What incredible beauty and very poignant.

I hope you are doing well. Think of you often and wish you well always in my thoughts.

On a borrowed IPAD to drop by and say, "HI."
