Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitude


This is my photo for Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge – the theme this week is Solitude.

It is of Brighton beach – I took it ages ago when I went there with my hubby for a weekend away. So I wasn’t alone, but the beach was pretty deserted. Just me and my man! This photo really captured a moment of solitude to me, as I stared out to the ocean and surrendered my thoughts to the power of the sea. It is never to be taken for granted, the sea is a mighty force, even on Brighton seafront!

If I had to be alone anywhere it would be beside the sea.

On Saturday I will be featuring Brighton in my #WeekendCoffeeShare post so do keep an eye out for that…….

Also I’d like to mention that the first few chapters of my novel, The Curse of Time are now on Wattpad:

Thanks to everyone who has visited me on Wattpad and tweeted about it, I really do appreciate it.

Before I go I’d just like to ask: Do you love the sea too? Do you have a favourite seaside town? Happiest beach memory?

Bye for now,

  2. This makes me slightly homesick for Brighton, having just moved from there. However, we’ll soon have our new house by the sea so we can walk along the beach with Toby again.
    Thanks for featuring Brighton in my photo challenge this week Marje. It’s always lovely to see photos of scenes you actually been in.
    I look forward to reading your weekend coffee post.

    I love the drama in your photos, Marje. The waves crashing in and the bubbling sea! I agree, the sea is a very powerful force. I love watching its story unfolding.

    My husband and I once went to stay in Brighton for a few days between Christmas and New Year – the beaches were pretty much deserted except for us, but the waves were stupendous! Perfect solitude 🙂

    Brighton beach… how beautiful…
    I like when beaches are deserted probably because it is off-season time…
    I have always think of the sea as a symbol of infinity and maybe as a reflection of the soul…
    By the way, as it is National Poetry Month, there is a poem by Camus called `L´homme et la mer´ in which he has pretty much depicted all this….
    All the best to you, Aquileana 🙂
