Nature is calling!

Real Estate Agent with Leo Parker Real Estate & Auction

These photos take me a million miles away from my troubles! Nature is calling and bidding me to stop and relax. Smell the roses... take time to see the beauty around me.

In such a busy day we live in, it is a good thing to take a break every now and then. These pictures remind me of those times when I have been able to do just that! I am looking forward to my next break!

Melissa~Those pictures are absolutely beautiful!  Did you personally take those pictures? If so, what kind of camera are you using?  Have a wonderful week!

Julie- Yes, these are mine and I use a Sony Cybershot. I have had it for several years but it takes great pictures. Hope you have a good one too! :)

Thanks Jim- I have always loved taking photos. I have been playing with it since I was in my teens.

Thanks Roberta and Cory!

Thank YOU Melissa!  Ironically, that is the same camera I have.  I think I need to take a class to figure out the proper settings.  When I'm trying to take close ups I often time get a big blur. Have a great week!

Love that Sony Cybershot.  It's what I've used for six years (well OK, I'm on my fourth one as I treat them just a little rough in attics and crawl spaces)

But Nature around here just ain't a calling.  It's telling me to stay in and stay warm.  Wish I could

Was it really that cold in Lawrenceburg?

Hi Melissa,
Stunning photos!  I felt like I was in a Calgon bath (remember the commercial, "Calgon take me away!") ?  LOL

Where was that first one taken, that is an amazing shot! Very pretty and I think I would just pull up a chair and sit there all day and enjoy the view.

Great piece.  I really enjoy your take on the importance of sitting back and enjoying the fruits or your labor.  I have always found that when I take time to reflect I always return with more enthusiasm and success than ever.

by the way, Do you have an outside blog that I can add to my Blogroll ?

Thanks and look forward to reading your thoughts on the world of real estate.
