Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week #20-Solitude

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”
George Gordon Byron


Time and thoughts stand still

Senses in contemplation

Serenity near

To visit Hugh

About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

      “Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away.” -Barbara De Angelis I thought you’d enjoy this quote. 🙂
