A Feeling of Zen


On the way back from a sunrise shoot not long ago I came upon these foggy scenes. Immediately thinking the scenes were ‘Zen-like’ I later thought, ‘what is Zen, exactly’? After doing a bit of research I found that there is no one single meaning but the images certainly do fit many of the definitions used to describe Zen. A quiet image or space is often characterized as Zen-like. It can be a state of mind in which one is calm and impassive. Zen can be a feeling of serenity and peace.
