The edge

Waiting for the week-end. De-stressing. Breathing deeply and taking in everything around me.

The water is so blue!! Great contrast with the green.

Oya said...

Great contrast on the colors. Any alligators around?

A good place for those nice babies you showed us these week? I wish you a good and quiet weekend, Isabella.

Sharpness and contrast is great. yes, are there any alligators?

Nikon said...

That is an amazing blue, & the sun sparkling, very nice shot.

Fabrizio ikol22 said...

Yes the photo feel peaceful but as oya, seda and nikon asked: any -less peaceful and often hungry- alligators around?

Frank said...

Ah, looks perfect for a swim. A quick dip, right Isabella?? Hmmm? You are not answering!

love the quote..
but so sad that some souls don't think of everything or even some things mentioned in the quote as soul impressive but everything in, around and about LIFE itself just well just happened !

thanx 4 the photo i'm impressed...

You have trained me so very well....I automatically started looking for alligators!
I hope that "taking in everything around me" includes looking for those lurking 'gators!
Have a wonderful weekend!
