Solitude Photo Essay

Posted by Val Fox on May 27, 2013 at 5:20 PM
In solitude, she gazes toward a darkening sea.  Mind numb, fingers torn. Bare and blistered feet beneath torn skirts.  Bruised clouds descend. Wooden legs turn toward home but her heart belongs to the sea's creatures, for now.

Heart-hammering solitude, just you and the water.  Just the kayak and your wits.  Only a move between life and death.  Exhilarating!

Foggy night solitude for a hungry, old crow.  He waits for the others...

Solitude among the giants

Summer at the lake.  Can't wait for Going-To-The-Sun Road to open.  Crystal waters, alpine forest.  Peaceful solitude.

I often see sights like this, especially at home on the prairie.  Vast, black skies far away from city lights.  Solitude is my friend under the stars. Solitude allows me to refresh and relax.  Grateful.

There is time for thoughtful contemplation.  There is also time to stop all the thoughts, breath...and just BE.

Solitude lends itself to a good photograph.  Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada provides unlimited opportunities for great photos and mezmerizing landscapes.

The ultimate in Solitude.  To feel alive and in touch with your surroundings.  Unseen vistas and granite footholds.

Hope you enjoyed this brief photo essay featuring the theme of solitude.  It can have many different faces.  These are but a few.  See you next time... :)                -Val

Yes I did like the words though the photo of the Hoar frost looks fake, it's not like any thing I have seen.
