This week's prompt in the Focus of Life series is "A photograph with a subject(s) captured in a shadowy outline with little or no detail against a bright background."
Hmm... that's quite hard to accomplish, trust me. In today's world, photography and everything else tend to get too complex, too saturate, too colourful, too fast, too everything. To capture a simple pose takes patience, and a bit of luck. To make it a perfect picture - you also need skill (which I am working on, but I openly admit I don't have enough of).
This week has been an incredible cold one - and we also had a -25C crisp day. Not good for getting out of the house, but perfect for taking pictures. Which I did :)
This is one the branches that fell 2 weeks ago, during the ice-age incident we had here. It's frozen in the snow and I thought it's a good subject for the Silhouette prompt.
Same day - you can see the sun shining bright and projecting lovely silhouettes on my sheers :)
The next one is not truly a silhouette, but it is the moment that made me stand up from my desk (facing the window) and pick up the camera: the bulbs shone very bright (they were on in the middle of the day, and the sun reflected off them) and the whole scene was taken out of some fairy tale book:
I hope you've enjoyed my truly cold, but gorgeous scenery (I will take a day like that instead of today's +1 and grey, ugly sky).
Please make sure you visit everyone else's silhouettes today!
