Images of Peace


2016 was quite a year, my friends, full, it seems, of everything but peace. Yet in the midst of the anger and bigotry and bloodshed and the tumult of our lives, there is peace to be found if we can open our eyes and hearts to see it.

We closed out the 2016 52 Week Photography Challenge with an end-of-year celebration of peace. I asked you to choose one of your photographs from 2016 that captures for you the peace that is not simply the absence of violence but the fullness of well-being and harmony that comprise true peace.

Here are the images you submitted.


Thank you for brightening my day and bringing a measure of peace to close the year.

Namaste,
Steve

I really loved the weekly challenge. It was fun, plus it challenged me to take shots I normally wouldn't think of taking. It helped me grow as a photographer. It was also great seeing the beautiful work of the other submitters.

Please tell me there's going to be a 2017 weekly challenge. If so, I'm there.

Thanks for 52 weeks of fun in 2016.

You are most welcome. No 52-week challenge, though lots of other contests to work on.

Well done to everyone who submitted, and I look forward to trying the challenges in 2017 (assuming the day-to-day challenges do not prevent taking part like in 2016)
Fingers crossed for a more peaceful year.
