A Captured Silhouette

While driving on the Swazi roads last year, I was trying my best to capture the beauty of the sunset. My husband was driving and I was snapping away happily, focusing on the sun setting behind the mountains. Looking back at my photographs afterwards, I was pleasantly surprised at the silhouettes I had captured of the people at the traffic light.

I liked, too, that I had captured the different colours of the sky. I don’t think I could have taken a better snap if I had planned it.

Have you been pleasantly surprised by the photos you have taken?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

We had spent the day out visiting family in Manzini, Swaziland and were on our way home. My family and I were not the only ones homeward bound after a long day. On the crest of a hill we saw some people waiting for a taxi so that they could ride home. They were silhouetted against the twilight sky, chatting to one another while waiting.

Luckily we did not have to wait for a ride and quickly arrived at our destination.

Do you often wait in the twilight for your ride home?
