Relax And Look At These Animated GIFs Created by Julien Douvier

Is there anything more peaceful than staring into moving water? Let these animated GIFs by artist Julien Douvier transport you into their peaceful realm.  I feel the need to hoard these GIFs away in my computer so I can revisit them at times of stress and confusion. They fill me with a sense of solace, the kind that only nature can provide. I can almost hear the water lap against the soft grassy shoreline, sense it's cool wetness on my feet and the open air silence that makes up the negative space of all things.
