Explore Stillness, Reflections and more!

Wordless Wednesday: I was struck by the beauty of the reflection of the clouds in the still water. MAN this place speaks to my heart!! #TaylorMadeRanch

How hard it can be to turn our attention within! How easily we allow our old habits and set patterns to dominate us! Even though they bring us suffering, we accept them with almost fatalistic resignation, for we are so used to giving in to them. We may idealize freedom, but when it comes to our habits, we are completely enslaved. Still, reflection can slowly bring us wisdom. We may, of course, fall back into fixed repetitive patterns again and again, but slowly we can emerge 🙏🏼 Source…

If visiting Milford Sound, one great piece of advice is not to go all the way to the water’s edge at low tide. Some of the best shots are from the still reflection shots of the puddles that form from the retreating water. There are hundreds of these little pools. - Milford Sound, New Zealand - Photo from #treyratcliff Trey Ratcliff at http://www.StuckInCustoms.com

This lighthouse is situated in the island of Pharos in Egypt with a mirror at the top which can still reflect light off-shore for more than 35 miles. It was Ptolemy 1 who conceived this idea in the 3rd century BC and built in 3 stages one above the other. This lighthouse guided many sailors back to shore for centuries. Although the structure was later damaged by earthquake, what remains standing is still an architectural elegance of time gone by.

Some are clear without rocks and others have rocks. I decided to move around until I found a nice sequence of them. - Milford Sound, New Zealand - - Photo from #treyratcliff Trey Ratcliff at http://www.StuckInCustoms.com

Clouds Near the Edge of Space (Aug 22 2012) Image Credit & Copyright: P-M Hedén (Clear Skies, TWAN) Explanation: Noctilucent or night-shining clouds lie near the edge of space. From about 80 kilometers above Earth's surface, the icy clouds can still reflect sunlight even though the Sun itself is below the horizon as seen from the ground. Usually occurring at high latitudes in summer months, the diaphanous apparitions are also known as polar mesospheric clouds (...) #astronomy
