I didn't notice the white-hair woman sitting on the bench until I looked through my lense. Is she lonely or happy to be alone?

    No, but I don't think she has a choice right now. She's reflecting on her life and has chosen a lovely and serene spot for contemplation. Or.....she stopped at Krispy Kreme and doesn't want anyone to know it. A terrific shot with lovely symmetry!

    Maybe she is a Budhist and is in a deep state of meditation. A great spot for it. LOL Very nice shot.

    I like the shadows on the dock that lead to the lady...I am glad she chose a spot to enjoy the view while she is thinking over if she is lonely or just wanting to be alone with her thoughts.

    Some types of loneliness are not depressing. Who could be depressed participating in that view? Wonderful capture. Beautiful composition. I want to walk down to the beach and dip my toes in the water.
