The Solitary Man by JonnyGoodboy The Solitary Man by JonnyGoodboy
Never really told anyone but I had many very vivid dreams when I were a young un to be a Lighthouse keeper one day,also desired to be a Lumberjack and live alone in a mountain cabin in the Rockies too.
Something about that solitary lifestyle ticked away inside of me,I`ve always enjoyed movies where there`s very few characters too,no matter where they are set :popcorn:



*Apologies to anyone who faved and commented on this during it`s very short history yesterday (I had it up about 3 mins),it completely lost it`s sharpness here on DA.
I resized it and saved it another way but it`s still down a bit,mystery to me this one as all the usual tricks I use (save for web and devices in PS and save from Lightroom) simply don`t work for this one
:shrug:

Shot,edited and in the vault for a while this one,think it was a tonemapped 2 shot Panorama.

Thanks for looking,have a safe Weekend friends! :wave:

Well if you live alone you'll be a hermit. Do you really want that? Plus you may have to find a cabin in Rockies. Rentals are far from plentiful.

It`s a pipe dream,will probably never happen but of course,that would be the reality of living alone :D I wouldn`t say not to a dog though :aww:

So (if it really did happen) you would be a mountain man, living off the land. With man's best friend of course.

This is gorgeous. It does lend a very solitary tone, but there is a bit of the mystical to such places.

Thanks so much for sharing this photo. I really like everything about this shot, those formidable rocks and the way you are drawn further into the shot to the lighthouse and that wonderful horizon. The sky itself is quite breath-taking and with the reflection of the larger rock gives a lovely balance to the whole composition. The colour hues are so subtle yet when looking at the shot you realise this is also the big attraction of this photo, particularly that larger rock which almost shimmers an emerald green and then you are drawn to the finer details like those small waves at the base
Thanks again for another inspirational, though provoking and educational shot.
Simon

I never wanted to be a lighthouse keeper, but I hope one day I can live in one :)
For me, it looks like a modern castle tower: feeling safe, high and above the ever changing sea (and society), and there will be always light to guide you. It's a mesmerizing place...
Wonderful picture! Thanks for sharing your dreams :)
