Travel Ahh…Silhouettes

Silhouettes not only capture definite outlines, edges and angles of a subject, but they offer a bit of mystery, too.  That’s what I like so much about them. I also like silhouettes because they seem a bit more forgiving when you’re taking a photo. The above photo of the boat I took after a stunning sunset in Kalbarri, Western Australia.

Bali, Indonesia. It’s impossible not to take a good photo of Tanah Lot, one of the sacred Hindu temples on Bali.

Bend, Oregon. This is the Deschutes River with the Three Sisters mountains peeking over the horizon.

Bend, Oregon. A standup paddle boarder moved right into this shot. I didn’t even notice him coming.

Brighton Beach, Victoria, Australia. This little guy was definitely exploring. Fearless, he reminded me of my son Eddie.

Wayzata, Minnesota. Water — even when it’s frozen — offers some of the best settings for silhouettes.

Wayzata, Minnesota. This looks like a desert shot to me.

Visegrád, Hungary. Because of the grainy quality, this photo looks like a cardboard cutout or a painting. But, ultimately, you can’t go wrong with a castle at dusk.

  1. Beautiful pictures Steph! Silhouettes do add a touch of drama to a picture. The sixth one from top is my favourite:) It reveals little about the place but does enough to make me think and imagine about it! Loved it:)

    • Thank you so much, Uday! I’m psyched you like the photos since I definitely admire your blog and photos. So glad you were able to let your imagination go. Thanks again for the kind words! Cheers — Steph

    • Yes! I just checked and you are right — thanks for that. Also, another fellow blogger has let me know that Dong means “Asian” as well. So either way, I guess it’s a pretty generic not as racy name for a restaurant. Funny how the connotation changes so much in English. Thanks so much for the information and the comment! Cheers.

      • You are SO worthy! And remember, I only show the good shots I got … oh, if you could see some of the crap ones LOL
