Solitude – photo 101


There was no-one else around when I took this photo of a path onto South Beach.  I walked for a while and sat on the beach, watching the birds wheeling and diving and the clouds floating by and thought it was just heavenly. I think of it still and remember the feeling of peace and solitude.

‘I never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude’
