Cook's Bay/ Sky Watch

A quiet moment, Keswick, Ontario at sunset

Everybody should have his personal sounds to listen for - sounds that will make him exhilerated and alive or quiet and calm.

I don't believe one can be truly mature till they can be quiet with themselves.

see you there! said...

This shot is so well framed - or maybe you call that cropped in photo language. Anyhow, it is great.
