Silvery light. Ripples.
Sine waves. Fast moving clouds.
Reflected. Waxing Moon rising. Still lagoon.

I See: A MAGICAL MOMENT.

  • Two seagulls directly in front of me. A third seagull gliding towards them. Waiting Breathing. Waiting.
  • Three seagulls directly in front of me. NOW.

Magical Moments:

Yesterday I announcing the birth of 'Magical Moments' at Steemit.

And I'd like to invite you to share any of your own 'Magical Moments' by using #magicalmoments as one of your five tags.

Your article can be an image or set of images and/or words that have the power to transport your audience to the special space (outer and/or inner) that you were in, when you experienced that 'Magical Moment.'

Gently touch any of the seagulls in this image to see the details.

Thanks so very much Barbara. I guess these gulls could be called lagoongulls too. 😊

Such beautiful synchronicity we have. Have just looked at your BeautifulDay article and it's so much in harmony with #magicalmoments.

So true that the more you lift your energy, the more you will see. And the more you see, the higher your spirits become.

I feel ever SO grateful to be an artist sometimes ~ To see the beauty in so many 'little things.'

I really look forward to showing you some of my 'hidden treasures' on some of my #BeautifulDays now too. 🐋🐌🐋

Following you now. I love to post for you #magicalmoments challenge.

Great pics - this blue is amazing

·

Lovely to connect with you @dutchess.

The blue was absolutely magical ~ Really silvery as the late afternoon light shone down on it. And every so often the seagulls swam into synchronized positions. Was it my imagination or was magic at play here?

Your floral photography is so beautiful. It's wonderful that you resonate with this concept, and will share your own #magicalmoments too. Looking forward to seeing them. 🐋🌹🐋

Wonderful Judith.

Feeling the magic of the sunset, as you looked out from your window, must have been such a beautiful magical moment.

Thanks so much for making 'MagicalMoments' just a little more magical. Resteemed at MagicalMoments. 🐋🌹🐋

Beautiful magic! Resteeming

Thanks ever so much Melinda.

Loved seeing the #BeautifulDay you spent in your own backyard.

So pleased you see some of the 'magic' that I was experiencing when I captured the images of these seagulls too. I hope you may also be inspired to share some of your own #magicalmoments too. 🐋🌾🐋

Every day gives us a new opportunity to have so many more magical moments. Especially for people who love nature. I look forward to seeing/hearing about some of your magical moments now Melinda. 🌀🍒🌀

Lovely :)
Like the second one most!
Wish you a great weekend @allyinspirit

·

Thanks so very much.

Was an interesting photograph to take. Was watching that one seagull. Just observing what was happening to the surrounding water every time he/she dived down and then came back up again. The still water would ripple as he/she dived, so I waited till he/she came up again and photographed the seagull + ripples.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend too @psywalker. 🐋❄️🐋

Thanks @gauravchugh.

Hey there, we have a pretty strong Team Australia community going here on steemit to support each other. If you'd like to be part of it, then please check out this link: https://steemit.com/teamaustralia/@choogirl/team-australia-new-recruits-update-05-07-17

Have been reading the posts and following some of the members of Team Australia already and I'd love to be part of the community @choogirl.

My initial introductory post was more about my art work than the 'artist' who, with a little help from my 'Creative Muse' makes all sorts of weird and wonderful things ~ As well as finding and photographing new spaces, that give the 'Creative Muse' a renewed 'breath of fresh air.'

Hope to send you few highlights of my life sometime this week ~ And REALLY look forward to seeing what you can do with it. 💛🐋💚🐋💛
