Weekly Photo Challenge: Serene

Pink Serenity

Pink Serenity | Namibia | 2017

Rarely has the theme of the Weekly Photo Challenge from Word Press’ The Daily Post hit a nerve with me more as this week with “Serene“.

I’m totally in need of some serenity. The job that pays the bills has completely taken over my life, add in some special topics as the upcoming move of my big girl and the typical pre-festive season stress, another upcoming ten day business trip across the big ocean, and you can imagine why I would absolutely love to jettison myself out of reality and to a serene place like the lagoon of Walvis Bay in Namibia with its Flamingo swarms. Obviously bringing my camera.

Getting to some photography and even blogging has been a bit of challenge the past days, as well as answering comments and checking out posts from the blogs I follow, so apologies for not being present as much as I want to be.

The serene scene above was taken with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 with the mZuiko 40-150mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom. Image specs 1/1600 secs @ f/5.6 and ISO 200, focal length was 150mm (300mm full frame equivalent). The photo is pretty much out of cam, aside from slight cropping.

I wish everyone a great Thursday!

Marcus

  1. Ah, I hear you! It is ironic how the things that help you de-stress can be the hardest to find time for when you need them most. I hope things calm down a bit for you and you can find time for your favorite things again. 🙂

  2. That is a truly gorgeous photograph and it represents the topic perfectly! I always enjoy seeing new photos from you. Without being busy we wouldn’t know what serene is though, would we? You’ll be back in Namibia before you know it!

  3. You couldn’t have picked a more fitting picture to describe the word serenity. I’m with you on the retail side and work having taken over. I’m sorry, but on the other side for selfish reasons, I’m glad not to be the only one as I struggle to keep up. I do wish you break soon and some time to breathe and balance. Much love and hugs my friend.

  4. Pink serenity is incredibly beautiful! It’s pure minimalism and it’s so poetic!

    Marcus, I wish you that the coming weekend will be relaxing for you. Take it easy and let some things go. For a while…
