Lens-Artists Challenge – My Retreats

Many times, there’s a need!

Especially, when certain things drive me nuts and I just wish to head out somewhere away from all the troubles.

But it ain’t so easy!

And so, nature comes to my rescue then, offering me to look beyond my limited vision.

It’s a great way to wipe out all the garbage from my mind and heart, so that I can relish over the wonders of amazing proportions.

They may seem ordinary to so many eyes but to truly understand them, one has to look from the inside.

As power of these natural wonders offers the best sanctuary for my tired mind and heart.

      The little part of this big world, which is my home, isn’t much scenic because of being so urbanized. So, these natural retreats are certainly more than welcome by me.
