This scenic pic is a combination of shots. A COMPOSITE of four shots. This is my second attempt and now I think I will not do too many, this is long tedious work, it is easier to just take a silhouette shot. All shots were taken in Northern California. My husband loves to feed the birds, and other critters along the coast line. I took shots of him feeding the birds, and I love to take shots of sunsets over the coast. The west coast sunsets are some of the best. I turned it BW and love it best in BW. He loves to stop at sunset for a break so I can shoot, early morning and sunset are my favorite times to shoot.

    This is one of the finest examples of silhouette work I have ever seen! Very Beautiful!
  • Gregory this means so much to me coming from you. I love doing silhouette’s, they are challenging and fun, and tedious work.
