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.
