Weekly Photo Challenge: Peaceful

Peaceful: untroubled by conflict, agitation, or commotion; quiet, tranquil ~Merriam Webster Dictionary

PeacefulI took the above photo with my Canon Powershot from a helicopter in Kauai. It represents what I think of when I hear the word peaceful. To sum it up, peaceful to me means…

  • Simple
  • Untouched
  • Void of technology (I work in social media for a living…it’s easy to get technology overload!)
  • Back to nature

Of course, the feeling of peace only lasted about 20 minutes. My Stronger Half and I both got extremely sick on this helicopter ride! Then again, isn’t that indicative of peace? One minute you have it, the next minute you don’t. That’s one of the reasons I love photography, you can capture a moment of peace forever!

How do you define ‘peaceful’?

Here are some of my favorite entries for this week’s photo challenge. Check them out!

  1. Gorgeous photo! Unfortunate you guys got sick from the helicopter ride though! 😦
    In addition to your already very accurate description of peaceful, I’d say for me, it also means:
    Worry/Anxiety free
    (at times) Nostalgic

  2. Beautiful shot and perfect for the theme. Definition of peaceful? A moment of calm where the worries and stresses of the real world evaporate and you embrace the place, the feeling, the company you are in at that time.

    I like the bright clouds contrasted with their shadows below. Thanks for reminding us that peace is transitory and often comes at a great cost.

    Nice, but that’s cheating. I have to climb to the top of a mountain to get a shot like that.
