Get Away From the Everyday

**Photos by me, from a 2010 camping trip to Allen Lake, Allen, NY about 20 miles from my home**

The beauty of seclusion

The silence of nature


Where a deep breath

And a long gaze

Taking in the freshness

Cleanses the mind

Recharges the soul

Far removed from the hustle and bustle

Of everyday

I smile inwardly at the serenity

Of clouds and sky

Water and trees                                                

And I smile outwardly

At the irony

That this place of nature’s beauty

Is man-made

    • Most of the ponds and lakes around here are man-made. Being in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, there aren’t many natural ones here.
