Picture This #361 ~ Peaceful

Hi and welcome to Picture This. Marvellous banner picture by Anders, congratulations. Wonderful view through the arch!!

The theme this week is "Peaceful". I have chosen nature shots, but people, places, or buildings can all convey a sense of peace. I hope you enjoy this theme.

Seagulls glide over a calm sea.

Lily of the Valley

Mourning dove.


  1. hi benni yes you picked a wonderful theme
    love your shots very peaceful

  2. Hi Benni !! Many thanks for hosting this week. A great theme, considering the events of the last couple of weeks, peace is what the world needs right now. The shot of the gulls gliding over the ocean just personifies the feeling of peace. All that's needed is the sound of the ocean and a few distant gull-calls. Wonderful shot of the 'lily-of-the-valley' Love all those tiny water-droplets, too. Lovely capture of the dove. Mourning for the loss of so much recently.

  3. Serene and beautiful with the soaring gulls

    Exquisite lilies

    Beautiful shot of the dove.

  4. Hi Benni! Congratulations for the excellent choice of theme for this week. I think it could not be better considering the latest sad events... Your three interpretations are very good and I appreciate the variety along with the quality of the photos, particularly the first one, though the lilies-of.the-valley with the droplets make it be a very delicate shot. In Portugal, brides like to have those lovely flowers in their wedding bouquets. The dove like a pigeon, is the symbol of peace so it's a perfect shot for the theme...
