If you've ever seen my camera-work, you'll know I didn't take this. Rather, my retreat buddy did: http://melanie.selemidis.com/.
Wow, that's pretty damn nice - inspirational? :)
Mel found the view itself quite inspirational. For me, as nice as it was, I found inspiration in being away from responsibility and by following/ticking off my daily lists. And maybe knowing that once enough writing was done, I could treat myself to a walk among the view :)
I could also mention chocolate.
It was definitely productive (and fun) and I am keen to schedule it in again next year, maybe with a larger group.
