Tranquility Below

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Karen Wiles

This photograph captures the eye and draws the viewer within, as it displays a sense of total tranquility and peace. Above the concrete pier, were a dozen children laughing, playing, and diving off the end in total joy. It was great seeing the contrast of noise above and the tranquil silence just a few feet below.

Location: Grand Case, St. Maarten
