My Vision of Peace
Shot in an ancient Carthusian Monastery in Andalusia, this image represents for me a vision of perfect tranquillity. The cloistered courtyard, shaded by flowering fig trees was almost deserted as a gentle breeze cooled the heat of early afternoon. A single dove rests on the edge of the central fountain, silhouetted against the incandescent white wall that encloses this secret garden. All is quiet except the faint sound of rustling leaves and the dove's gentle coo.

"Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal." (Martin Luther King)


Medium
This is a color photograph shot with a Canon A650is compact digital camera. Aside from cropping to square dimensions and some minor tweaking of contrast and tonal range parameters, the photograph was not modified in post.
Aperture: F8.0 Shutter Speed: 1/250 ISO: 100

The tranquil simplicity quite literally brings everything into sharp focus. Great image, Marcel.
