Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

“Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see. Every breath we take, every step we take, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity. The question is whether or not we are in touch with it. We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment.” – Thich Nhat Hanh.

This was taken at a park near Manali’s (Himachal Pradesh, India) shopping centre. Tucked quietly in there, the park’s amazing. Surrounded by millions of tall trees, you walk along this path that eventually leads you closer to the Beas River. The Beas River, ranging for a total length of around 500 kms, runs from The Himalayas in central Himachal Pradesh to River Sutlej in Punjab (to know more about the river, click on the link above).

Trying to capture a view between the trees

Sitting there and gazing at the sunset and only listening to the whoosh of the water streaming by, the chirping of crickets, the wind rustling the leaves and the trees dancing to their own merry tune can take away even the slightest of stress anyone might have. For a nature lover like me, this is one of the serene and best places I have visited so far.
