I always try to respect sacred ground, even if it is from an ancient religion or from a people with a different belief system than I have. Grønsalen is located on the Danish island of Møn and is a long barrow burial site dating back to around 3500 BC. The weather was beautiful and the site was peaceful. I thought the site would either not stir any emotion or feel like a cemetery. Instead, I felt more respectful to those people who have long passed and chose this site to bury their dead. It is amazing to know people were walking around, living their lives, and honoring their dead that long ago on a spot where I was standing. It makes me wonder how similar their lives were and think of how different their lives were to mine.
Water always has a relaxing feeling to it. Whether on the beach, by a lake, or just taking a shower, water relaxes me. Sunsets are simply beautiful too, and my favorite time of day. This picture was taken in Søro, Denmark. It is a small town, with a renouned academy and a beautiful lake. The summer evening walk around the lake was a great way to relax after a day of playing tourist and driving.
