This has been such a hard topic for me – not because I am never blissful, but I don’t know if I’ve ever captured it on film! So I’ve stretched my mind and come up with the following…..Are they blissful? I’m not sure, but they did make me feel very happy.
In 2015 I finally visited some of Australia’s iconic landmarks.
And then heading north from Alice Springs are the famous Devils’s Marbles.
Bliss? Sitting around a campfire with fellow travellers at the end of the day.
And being visited by the locals at some wonderful camp sites –
My idea of absolute bliss? Lying on a pristine beach, feeling the sun warm you to the bones and drifting off – not to sleep, but to that blissful state of being aware of what’s around you but not being part of it at all. Now that’s hard to capture with words, let alone a photograph!

Another nice blog Rosemary. I agree with your definition of bliss, there is something about beautiful beaches, warm sun and rolling waves that soothes the mind. The only photo I have seen that comes close to expressing that feeling is Max Dupain’s famous B&W photo “Sunbaker”. You can find it here
