30 Words: Idyllic

A slow flow of rippling stream,
broken rarely by a spirited trout.

A footbridge across to our quiet respite.

A setting and place seemingly both out of time, 
and timeless.

This week's 30 Word Thursday entry was an out-take from my sketchy photo challenge where I took several photos and gave them a sketch effect.  This one was a photo from the very small town of Chiny in the Ardennes that we stayed at while in Belgium this past summer.  After all the chaos of big European cities, dangerous bikers, and crowded pubs, this place was amazingly relaxed and beautiful.  I tried and tried but couldn't catch that trout on film!  I used a pen sketch effect on this one and it has just a little too much going on with the grass in the foreground for me to really love it, but still has a pleasant look to it.  Check out the other 30 Word Thursday entries at Erin's Treasures Found Blog!

Ah... to travel to see these far flung places. One day I hope that I will have the time to do that! (And the money and energy!) Until then, I love to see the places that other have been and imagine myself there. This is a cool effect! Thanks for joining in the 30 Words! Enjoy the day. Erin
