52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge

43. Solitary

27 Comments

Once again I’m vacillating between 2 photographs that are both appropriate for “Solitary”. Seeing I kept procrastinating, Mindy said I should use both as I am suffering from “paralysis by analysis”! No more hemming and hawing…

Like many people, I sigh and gasp at the sight of beautiful sunsets and the brilliant colors they paint across the heavens. The first photo was taken a block from our house after asking my husband to drive me around while I photographed the ever-so-lovely sunset. I spotted this denuded tree standing alone in the fields.

The second photo was taken at the Ringling Causeway in Sarasota, Florida while visiting Mindy…I know, I know, another sunset picture… There were several people who walked past this solitary grey heron perched at the top of a lamppost without noticing it.

And there you have it: two solitary living things, one in Panama, one in Florida, both against a blushing sky.

  1. Very nice pictures, Ida. Like you, I never grow tired of seeing the beauty around us. Too many have lost the wonder of it all…..so caught up with the forest, they’ve forgotten to appreciate the trees!!
