Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Silhouettes.

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Silhouettes.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge, the first was a selection of silhouettes spanning the decades followed by a selection of bird silhouettes.

In the end I went with a selection of silhouettes from the South Bruce Peninsula over the past few years.

The new Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge is In or On Water.

I quickly came up with a selection before deciding that they were all a little obvious. So I went through my archives looking for something less obvious.

So here’s a backlit Ring-billed Gull at sunrise. It’s standing in foam from waves whipped up by an overnight storm. Taken on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.
