Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

It is time for the Daily Post’s Photo Challenge, which this week is “Renewal”. Cheri says

I think of beginnings. Life. Opportunity. What images does Renewal conjure for you? Get creative. Think beyond the usual images (a sunrise, a birth). We want to see what else you can come up with.

To me, renewal means:

20121110-094958.jpg Quiet time in my yard, down by the pond sometimes, listening to the sound of the water flowing from the waterfall and gurgling from the fountain. On a warm day when the fish come up near the top, it is renewing to see them swim about, knowing they survived another winter.

20121110-095142.jpg Seeing the pair of eagles in their normal spot, refreshing to see that they are still here, that life goes on for them too.

    This is such a sweet interpretation of the theme. It strikes a chord with me, and makes me look around at my world just a little differently. Thank you for sharing this!

    Peaceful outdoor places bring renewal for me, too. Also my furry ones, even when they are sometimes the reason I need renewal ;)

    Fantastic post for your peaceful places of renewal. The eagles are beautiful…I just wish they would spend time here in Indiana. I like how Lily relaxes and renews herself. Wonderful post ;)

    Enjoyed reading your renewal thoughts and admiring your photos, too. Yep, gotta love those eagles. But even more love the way your words/photo in the first image conjured up just sitting quietly in the yard. The small pleasures of life.

    Perfect! Although renewing my spirit on a beach with drink in hand is my first option, these are wonderful alternatives!
