As I sit atop the mountain, gazing at the nothingness beyond, I feel a sense of calm, that this is what life is really about. The sun slowly rises, shining bright – a welcome relief after the early morning hike in the cold darkness. I am subtly aware of the masses of people who surround me, and am not surprised that this spot is both a pilgrimage for some and a tourist hot spot for others. Some of life’s most amazing moments are in solitude atop mountains, but one can’t deny that beauty is beauty, even without solitude… very much without.
I am selecting this photo as an entry into Julie’s Photo Blog‘s Best Photo of the Week event.
