Silhouettes

I enjoy seeing silhouettes at the end of a day spend outside. Often the weekends during the summer are spent outside, resulting in my family and I seeing the sun setting behind the iconic CN tower.

Whenever we have the opportunity, we enjoy watching the sun go down near a bed of water in Ontario.

I enjoy as well the silhouettes created by the African landscape. The fingers of the trees rising against the outcrops of mountains is a sight that is familiar to me.

As is the sight of workers waiting for the taxi at a street corner:

A sight that I have not seen often, but which I enjoy, is the silhouette of beach goers at the end of a day spent on a Mauritian beach. The warmth of the sand and the sea continues to tempt those still left on the beach.

The sight of the Mauritian beach is always calming – even those beaches that do not encourage too much swimming.

And a view of a palm tree on the beach is a sight that one is assured to see.

No matter where one is in the world, one can be sure to see a silhouette that is unique to that country’s landscape.

What silhouette do you often see?

  1. Lovely selection, especially like the workers waiting for the bus. Living and working where I do, I mostly see the silhouettes of buildings, and sometimes trees against the city skyline.

    1. Thank you Carol. Watching these sunsets was a pleasure for me and I am happy to share them.
      Look forward to seeing you on Facebook. If you have a page for your blog give me the link. Sometimes it is a great way to find posts that don’t come to my WordPress feed.
