Lancaster County has been enjoying the loveliest weather this week.  I can’t get enough of it.  My daughter, Julia, and I had a free day so we headed to Kelly’s Run for some fresh air and exercise.  Kelly’s Run is a rather strenuous trail that traverses some gorgeous terrain near the Susquehanna River in the south-western portion of the county.  It is one of those places my family considers our very own; we’ve spent so much time and had so many adventures there that in our hearts the place belongs to us.

I took my camera with me hoping that opportunities to capture a scene of solitude would present themselves.  With Julia graciously acting as my model, I was able to acquire several shots I thought fit the assignment.  Below are my two best efforts.  They are  very different from each other but I think they both work for the Solitude prompt.

I’m very interested in hearing your comments and opinions.

  1. Nice shots! (Makes me want to go hiking.) I think the second one reflects solitude a little more than the first one. She seems pensive in that one, something I associate with solitude.

  2. Love the second shot – but I do get the solitude and contemplation of walking( hiking) on your own.

    1. I find hiking alone to be rewarding so the first image suits my idea of solitude. Glad you like the second image. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
