#Photography: A Cool Stream #Photo #Art #MPBooks

It is very hot in the UK at the moment and for many today may well be the hottest day of the year (and even since records began).  For those of you affected, like me, stay cool, hydrated and in the shade.  I hope you all stay well and just to cheer up anyone who may be feeling a bit miserable from the overly oppressive heat, here’s a photo I took a few weeks ago in London (before the grass began to dry out) of a cool stream…or is it a brook?  I don’t know what it is, but the sound of the water trickling in an otherwise quiet location is wonderful.  😎😎😎

Today I am bringing you a picture which I think sums up the word silence very well.  With what looks like civilisation so far away, there is a great silence near this water.  The only thing you hear is a breeze in your ears but it’s a beautiful silence otherwise and the perfect place to take a moment to yourself and breathe 🙂

I thought this would sit nicely with the daily prompt of ‘nest‘ 🙂 !  What do you think?  While I’m not sure the seagull is actually nesting here, birds are notorious for finding many places to nest including man made structures like this.


What do you think of this picture?  Please do comment, I’d love to hear from you 🙂  You can also find me in these places:
