Weekly Photo Challenge – Solitude

This week’s photo challenge is “solitude“, show what being alone means to you.

For me I did not need to think, I knew the answer straight away – to be on top of a mountain, the wind blowing through the hair and a sense of looking out over everything. Peaceful solitude, a wonderful state, away from all modern interference.

I remember being asked where I would like to be if the world came to an end. I answered, “On top of a mountain” and got a very puzzled looking response. May be I was expected to say Vegas, in a bar, Mauritius or some other exotic location…

In terms of an image I have selected one taken on a lowly hummock, on a small island that gave rise to a lovely view adorned with the colours of a rising sun. Solitude in perfection.


For those interested, this is the Island of Colonsay on the west coast of Scotland.

    1. The right clothes help! Such a peaceful place and to be able to look down on the world. I find forests can be disorientating, difficult to get one’s bearings as impossible to see landmarks for much of the time. Love the wildlife that inhabits them mind πŸ€


Love to hear what you think
