Endlessly lonely

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 20 May 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Kind of describes my life and mood on some days recently.
This is another view of the moorland on Stanhope Common in County Durham.

Ana Lúcia from Leiria, Portugal

Fascinating sense of space and distance in this . . that road really calls.

20 May 2017 10:48am

@Ana Lúcia: I don't know why, but I always fancied making a road shot :-)

Shaun from Thorton, United States

Excellent landscape and road shot, with a very nice sky above.

STEED from D, France

I'm seeing my own look here,when playing with the different fonctions of my Fuji .....Superbly done,Friend,superb colours on this Road with no end ......I Love !!!!!! *****

20 May 2017 2:53pm

@STEED: This Fuji is only a tiny little pocket compact, but it has a lot of functions to offer. It saddens me when people pay a lot of money for a camera then never move it out of auto mode.

Devi from Chennai, India

A stunning view! I love the landscape and the colors! I love how you composed this with the road going on forever. The clouds are spectacular! 5*****

@Elaine Hancock: Shhhhh.....don't say a word, I didn't even bother stepping out of the car!

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

beautiful scenic. I love the way the road seems to stretch into infinity, yet disappears into the folds of the earth well before the horizon.

21 May 2017 1:45am

@Harry: Thank you I'm glad it appeals to you Harry.

Steven Palubinski from Colorado, United States

I can feel the bite of your cold northern wind. Good image, Curly.

21 May 2017 2:37am

@Steven Palubinski: Yes it can get a bit raw up here sometimes, however anything over 5 Celsius is enough to get us sunbathing bare chested :-)

Jypyä Pop from Turku, Finland

This view depicts life. It continues, continues and never knows how long.

21 May 2017 3:47am

@Jypyä Pop: For ever sometimes :-)

Great photo! Superb atmosphere and excellent composition. Love the road leading through. Sums up your feelings well but I hope that happy times can be found where the path leads.

21 May 2017 7:52am

@Darkelf Photography: At times I'm pretty sure that my late wife is leading me down these paths with the intention of firmly stamping those memories of good times into our lives.

Anita from West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States

Nice view. I admire you for being able to convey your feelings with a photograph.

23 May 2017 1:48pm

@Anita: I guess, right now, I still have a lot hidden away, just waiting to emerge.
