I love this shot, SYS ! After viewing it, I feel peaceful, and have stopped dreading the winter that's coming. :-)

Thank you. This image makes me re-live that feeling of standing there without a soul nearby. No other makes me feel the same as solitude in winter.

A while back discussion was had around the thread topic and its intentions.
I've never posted here as mine would have been a scene in a city with a sea of people knowing I'd know no one and feeling of utter isolation.
But those two magnificent snow scenes have the exact opposite feel for me.
Ah-keong, it's interesting.
That scene is what was so precious to my lonely, alone daughter waiting out her husbands overseas deployment in a very dangerous environment.
She'd look at the moon knowing he'd be able to see that also. A common bond through an extremely distant object.

We're all different, but most of these scenes certainly don't or wouldn't make me feel alone.

Everyone has a unique perspective on the experience of being "alone." You should post the ones with your own take on its meaning. I'd like to see them.

Something like this....a foreign city with a sea of people...?

Exactly what I had in mind.
But I could be down town anywhere in a busy Tasmanian city, swimming with people like in your photo oblivious to those around them, no recognition of your presence, just going from A to B.
Thanks for posting.

I do realise we're uniquely different.
Probably for me, tempered by the extremes of workplaces I visit.

Wow, you're in Tasmania. Embarrassed to say this but I had to look it up to see where around the globe it's located in. That's gotta be a very unique place!

This was something I took when I was a high school kid a few decades ago during the film days.... This image is very special to me, something I treasure to this day. I still remember very vividly of the emotions I was feeling at the moment I pressed the shutter. I was a fresh immigrant at the time, knowing no one, no person to talk to in a foreign country. All I had was a handed down camera from my father, and I captured the things that only later I realized were my inner experiences.... I call this image "The Old Man and the Sea."
