Sea of Calmness

frog floating on leaf

I sometimes find interesting or out of the ordinary details in nature when I expect them the least. It’s the case with this photo of a small frog floating on a leaf in a pond. I was searching for new ways of getting further up a valley, didn’t have too much success so I decided to sit down and catch my breath for a couple of minutes, near a pond in the forest. I noticed that a little frog was doing the same thing resting on a fallen leaf, so I grabbed my tele lens and took a couple of photos.

I like this image, to me it evokes some kind of calmness, tranquility. This little guy is in the middle of the pond, yet floats around calm like nothing else exists.┬áSometimes when I’m stressed this image comes to my mind. Gotta keep calm, or the leaf might overturn. Great advice learned from nature, like so many other useful things.

I even have a print of this photo, and it works as a reminder to keep calm. If you like it enough to want to hang it on your wall, you can get it here
