Travel Theme: Stillness

Where’s My Backpack has a weekly travel theme and this week’s is Stillness. Many of the posts I’ve seen so far show still waters and reflections. I tried to find a few different ideas on the theme.

Cemetery at a Salford church

Cemeteries always invoke an atmosphere of peace and stillness. Salford, UK

Sunrise over the highlands from Skye

Sunrise is a very quiet time of day as a rule. Mainland Scotland from Broadford, Isle of Skye.

Inside Trinity church, York

There is always stillness inside a church, especially the older ones. Even with people inside looking around or sitting and thinking, I find that quietness pervades. Trinity Church, York, UK

P1060190

Ruins of castles and churches and abbeys always seem still and quiet, dignified even when the tourists are busy walking around but even better without. Rievaulx Abbey, Yorkshire
