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.
To be left alone is the most precious thing one can ask of the modern world.

I feel they both work for solitude assignment and they both are great photo’s. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for the kind words!
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.
I agree with you. The second shot does display reflection and pensiveness better. Thanks for the feedback!
Both pictures are gorgeous
Love the quote, that’s exactly how I am feeling today!
Me, too! Thanks for taking the time to comment.
I agree that the second one expresses solitude more and I do life the quote. I’m in Delaware and loving this weather too! Actually got a sunburn yesterday!
I hope the warmer weather is here to stay. I’m ready for a sunburn myself… 🙂
Love the second shot – but I do get the solitude and contemplation of walking( hiking) on your own.
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.
Send me some of that weather! Nice photos and quote.
Would gladly do it if I could. Thanks for the compliments!
