Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

I guess it’s understandable that, having been batting around the galaxy in my sidewinder spacecraft for the last week playing Elite, my immediate thoughts would turn to the excellent Sci-Fi film Serenity πŸ˜‰ However, I don’t think that’s going to help much with this photo challenge and I got to thinking about what Serenity means to me. It’s very much a moment of inner peace and I tend to find such moments when doing the things I love best. The quiet contemplative moment on a bridge in the countryside waiting for a train to come. Standing on a hill overlooking the land around. Drifting along in a light aircraft over the countryside at harvest time. Effectively… Time spent enjoying the view whilst thinking random thoughts πŸ™‚ And sometimes it’s nice to achieve that level of Serenity whilst sitting at the computer…

The view from Battlesbury Hill - A cow stands atop the Iron Age earthwork and admires the view across the valley of the River Wylye toward Cow Down on the far horizon.  The eagle eyed will spot a train below on the Westbury - Salisbury line.
