What Does Loneliness Look Like?

What does loneliness look like? What does the end of an era look like? Can you be content with yourself? Can you face your fear? These are some of the questions I was aiming to display in an image. I sought to find somewhere that would reflect a faceless figure, representing the body and mind. The isolation of the beach allowed for a sense of endless wilderness, coupled with the reflection of a storm passing - or approaching - in the winter. The lack of colour permits the eye to be distraction free, and adds to the simplicity of the questions I'm asking when put to a simple yes, no, or we shall see answer.
