On 25th March 2017, my husband Hugh’s middle son, Andrew, (aged 58) sadly passed away suddenly while on holiday in Taiwan. He was walking towards the sunrise. I don’t know if he made it in time, but at least he would have been planning to appreciate the beauty of nature. On 29th March I tramped around the coastline of Lake Tennyson, (about an hour’s drive from Hanmer Springs along the Clarence valley). During the 25 years I have lived here, I have never seen this lake so peaceful, so calm and so tranquil. The water was crystal clear and even without Polaroid glasses or a Polaroid filter on the camera I could see small trout lazily swimming to and fro. I make no apologies for this perfect reflection made in “tourist light” in the middle of a sunny day. The tramp, the place, the quiet and the weather were solace for my soul at just the right time.

  1. Balm for the soul! Very lovely.

  2. So sorry to hear this news Barbara. Nature’s beauty has put on a wonderful show, just when you needed it. Our thoughts are with you.

  3. The peace and tranquillity of nature.

  4. I’m very sorry to hear of your loss Barbara. The more I look at this picture the more I’m drawn by those wee subtle ripples towards the meeting place of the mountains at the head of the lake – and I want to keep going forward to explore what is seen but unseen. A lovely image to sit with, especially given the place you are in.

  5. Tťhank you all. This is a spot I will continue to visit as long as I am able. I am pleased I could create this calm image to revisit when I physically cannot
