Perhaps a little tenuous, but I'm trying to think a little outside the box. You are (or at least feel) solitary when a relationship breaks up.

A more literal interpretation - a lone man fishing early in the morning.

Another on the beach theme that seems very popular.

I don't envy your job Mickfly, there are so many great shots popping up for this months challenge. I can't recall the last time I saw that almost every picture submitted was a possible finalist.

Thanks Colin, I think it will be very difficult, but, my wife will help me, and at least we only have to choose a shortlist, the rest of you make the decision for the final winner.

Some great shots coming in though, thanks.

Mick.

Not much time left and I personally think that minimum 25 Pictures are worth finalists and I would find it very difficult to decide between them.

 

Any last minute additions?
