The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Silhouette

This week’s photo challenge is silhouette. So I went with a few of my favorites. Hope you enjoy.

 

This one is probably one of my favorites. I managed to get the silhouette of the tree in my backyard against a glorious sunset.

This is the same tree, except in winter silhouette, white against a pure blue winter sky. The tree was covered in hoar-frost.

A couple of more hoar-frost covered trees, except these are at night. I love the ‘otherworldly’ like quality of the picture.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective

Perspective is important to every photographer. With the creative use of perspective narrowed down through the lens of a camera, a bit of gravel can look like a barren desert landscape or a few trees can trick the eye into thinking you’re deep in a centuries-old forest.

This week’s photo challenge is about perspective: post a photo which is not what it seems to be. Make sure you share what the photo actually is of in its caption!

For those who are looking for an extra bit of challenge, show us two photos, each one showing a different angle or interpretation of the same subject:

Mine is a strange Canadian Frost World……
