This is a second shot for solitude, though I took it a few years ago. This picture from the beach at Rickett’s Glen State Park was taken in about 5 degrees in the middle of winter. Solitude abounds at that temperature, but I love finding places that are contrasts. So the picnic tables that would be full of families in the summer were all mine in February. This shot is full of drama, with the low light and the clouds and the exaggerated grain of the weathered wood on the tables.
