This week’s photo challenge on The Daily Post was Silhouette. When I saw the post with the announcement last week my first reaction was “Noooooo!!” Let me explain. Last Friday I was packing up and getting ready to head home from Hawaii on an evening flight. I had no time to capture a silhouette picture before getting on the plane and Hawaii would’ve given me so many opportunities to get a good silhouette picture. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. Since I’ve been home I haven’t gotten any silhouette pictures and truthfully I haven’t even been paying attention during sunset moments because of I’ve been busy seeing friends and running errands etc.
I have this one picture from my visit to the summit of Mauna Kea, which I wrote about yesterday. I don’t know if it’s technically a silhouette picture, because it’s not of a person or of an object that is not really far away, but it’s the closest picture I have to a silhouette at the moment (that I can think of at least).
That’s Maui in the distance that you see past the clouds with the sun set behind it. The round things to the left and right of the picture are observatories. This probably isn’t a traditional silhouette picture and I wish I could’ve gotten some cool shots at the beach or something, but oh well!
