Spreading Tree

Here is another try on the silhouette theme. I know that people choose trees more than any other subject for silhouettes, but I had to give it a try.

Bicycle Silhouette

While out for a walk the other day I came across this abandonded bicycle. I was looking for suitable silhouette type pics to take so this did the trick for me, it got me started. This is a learning curve for me as I have never tried silhouette type photography before.

Tree in Winter

Trying a bit of Lucis on this photo to see what the effect is.
Quite pleased with my first try.

My Son who lives in Calgary, Canada sent this to me
It is called the Cochrane Mural..

For those not living in the west, Cochrane is NW of Calgary and east of Banff , in the foothillks of the Rockies .This mural was unveiled last week at the Cochrane Ranche House. Each tile is 1 foot square and has it's own individual picture. Each tile is by a different artist. All of them placed together form this huge mural.

You can click on each of the tiles to see them in detail, pay special attention to the horses eye.

Here it the site address:
