This was one of my higher rated shots in this challenge as I love the simplicity and the colours. As noted during the challenge I find the clouds a bit too distracting.

The lone tree, used quite well. It makes good zen.

Awesome photo, minimal subject, no movement, minimal lighting, great tonal qualities. My fave so far.

Lovely capture. I know the mind needs to be at rest to see such a beauty around us. This is surely Zen. Hope it does well for you.9.

This is beautiful! As little as I know about "zen", this photo speaks it to me! It would make a great wall print!

Subtle, peaceful. I like the way the edge of the hill/cliff fades out to the left. You can get just a hint of what lies beyond in the vast space.
