Weekly Photo Challenge – Happy Place

Fall Happy Place

A body of water plus fall color in New England certainly equals a happy place for me.

This photo was taken on Wednesday at Beaver Dam Campground, in Berwick, Maine, about seven miles from home.

I wasn’t ready to dive in and head for that dock, but it certainly was beautiful and peaceful to look at again.

When I’m looking at a serene spot like this I smile and remember Curly (Jack Palance) and Mitch (Billy Crystal) in City Slickers contemplating the meaning of life. Curly holds up one finger and says “it’s one thing, but you have to figure out that one thing for yourself.”  🙂

    Whoa, that’s exactly what I was thinking…..but then I thought any idea I had must be wrong!!! Whatever the answer, it’s still an amazing picture. Thanks for sharing it.

  18. Gorgeous and serene! The leaves have barely begun to change down here in DC, but there are a few daubs of gold if you try to find them. Hugs!

  20. Don’t we just love autumn and those reflections? I am glorying in Octoberness, even if it isn’t the best autumn ever, it’s still autumn. May it last a long time!!

    Can’t go wrong with water and fall colors…Nice shot Judy.


  26. A still lake or pond with clear water is certainly a happy place, especially if the water if full of reflections of trees and sky.
