going for a stroll

Lately I've become and avid walker. At some point of the day, I don my tennis shoes, grab my camera, and head out. Luckily I live in the country, so there is many a field and hill to explore. Just in the past week I've found several "heaven spots." These are places where I can just sit back and read a book, listen to music, or simply think. Really, it's like my own personal Narnia.

Lately my favorite time of the day to go walking has been around 5 o'clock, just as the sun is beginning her golden retreat. Her rays gently touch the fields, and practically set them afire. {This of course creates the perfect picture-taking setting. ;)}

I just love how going for a stroll clears my mind, and refreshes me. It's amazing, what a little peace and quiet will do for you.

Yes, quite amazing indeed.

P.S. 25 of you?! Oh my goodness gracious! :)

Beautiful Post. :)
Ha, I wish I lived in the country! Lucky you. :D - Since I live in the city, and a neighborhood, I wouldn't feel very safe taking a walk by myself!
- Beautiful pictures!

Thank you Leah!

Yes, I love living in the country. :) Oh I see... Yeah, that's a bummer. :/

I do that all the time too! Five o'clock is when something just pulls me outside with my camera like a magnet! :) Beautiful photos!

Oh I know right? The lighting is {usually} all golden and lovely at that time. Thank you! :)

I love the country. It's so peaceful and fresh. Mmm.
Of course, I love the city too, but for totally different reasons!
I can never decide if I'm more of a country girl, or more of a city girl. Perhaps I'm just both. :)
