Weekly Photo Challenge – Silhouette

This Weekly Photo Challenge – Silhouettes presented a challenge only in that I had so many photos that made a potential fit.  So I have tried to choose the most unusual.


Ravens silhouetted against the sky, and black cockatoos flying across sunset:

  1. i hate curating a ‘favourites’ file, so I’m glad you let your fancy show us a nice selection, Keira! I didn’t notice you back, so glad you popped by. Hope everything’s been ok and you’ve finished that thesis?


    • I’m glad you enjoyed the selection – most of them are from the last few months. And no – haven’t finished 😀 There have been the most complicated string of problems, many of which were/are not of my doing. Very frustrating. Am in the finishing stretch now. Glad you liked the selection 🙂 And how are you? How is your new world?
      I’m glad I’ve sorted my technical problem and can be part of the blogging world again. It was so frustrating!


  2. My favourite is the branches with the moon in the centre, I like the shapes the branches and leaves make.

    Love both of your flying bird shots especially. Such a difficult capture considering the darkness!

    Yes, I suppose they are somewhat loose interpretations, but that helps to make them more interesting and more engaging. The initial ravens picture was a “strict” interpretation (to my mind, anyway) so the sequence is nicely structured in the way it moves to looser/freer approaches. Well done, and nice to see the postings resuming….
