Alone with white sand and white noise. Losing myself by design.

The Indian Ocean's waves poured warm salt foam across my bare feet. I had been wandering along the coast for over an hour, capturing images of the seascape. The view gradually changed, but never became any less impressive.

The isolation crept up on me, much like my languid pace.

Turquoise blue, sea turtles, and the tracking sun was my company. I hadn't seen another soul for hours and I wouldn't have it any other way. This is the typical beach experience in Exmouth Australia, and the seclusion of the afternoon made it my own; wonderfully unique.

These moments accumulated over the next handful of days as I explored the western coast of the island continent. Even when touring with a small group of friends, the isolation remained, impossible to escape. The sweep of the landscapes and the expanses humbled me.

That experience remained as I returned to the modernity and aggressive cacophony of urban life, far away from the brush and shores of the outback.

I long to get lost once again, distant vastness on the edge of the world.

Exmouth is still there there to hide me.
