Middle of nowhere

I have a deep, and abiding love for the natural resources around me, and whenever possible take advantage of the trails and parks for some much needed peace and quiet.

While the beaches here are amazing, they can be a little too crowded for me, even this time of year. Yet, I have found a few isolated places hidden among the dunes. Beaches that are welcoming expanses of tranquility.

When I want to get away, to be able to hear my own thoughts, I seek out solitude, and often find myself in the middle of nowhere.

  1. Tara – love them all but the simple photo of the boards and grass is just stunning. I’m also a fan of peace and solitutde – you’ve captured the mood well.


  2. The middle of nowhere is a great place to be alone with your thoughts. It looks like you do a great job of finding those quiet places.

    I really love the shots with the dramatic clouds!


So, tell me what you really think:
