Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Time to Relax
“Relax. No one else knows what they’re doing either.”
This week Amy has invited us to take some time to relax. As the dog days of summer are upon us, a ride through the countryside of upstate New York provided me with just that opportunity. Above, a typical scene from a day spent meandering through the nearby hills and fields.

There were many idyllic moments along the way, including these two beautiful white horses. They were a bit skittish at first, perhaps never having faced a lens 🙂 but before long they too relaxed and continued to enjoy their grazing.
“Remember the time to relax is when you don’t have time to relax.”
Happily, we were just in time for fresh-picked corn on the cob – one of nature’s sweetest treats. Beautiful fields of corn dotted the countryside throughout the area, along with the ever-present hay bales seen below.
“Just relax and enjoy the magnificence of life.”
I’ll admit I’m not a big fan of driving, but somehow meandering through the countryside is a whole different thing. No traffic, no noise, no anxiety – just peaceful relaxation. What could be better?!
“The universe doesn’t even know that you exist, so relax!”
