Lens-Artists #102: A Quiet Moment

This week our host Patti has challenged us to capture a quiet moment.

My favorite thing to do on a hot summer day is hop in our 17 foot boat and go for a ride in the salt water creeks and rivers near our home. Getting out on the water is always soothing and sometimes we can enjoy some quiet moments as we go along.

This week we took a scenic ride through narrow, twisting creeks through the salt marsh.

Quiet boat ride through the salt marsh

We found some quiet moments as we slowly made our way through the twists and turns. Except for when we met a boat going the other way we were the only humans in the area. As we were treated to sightings of snowy egrets, herons, and wood storks the only sounds were those of nature and our quiet engine. Even the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins surfacing for a breath of air made little noise. I was too busy enjoying the moment to get any photos of the wildlife.

Ride along with us in this video.

Thank you Patti for this weeks Lens-Artists Photo Challenge -A Quiet Moment
