The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is Silhouette.
I would love to have some amazing shots of palm trees against a sunset background, but alas, I don’t have any! Well, we don’t tend to have palm trees here so … there really isn’t much opportunity.
My first picture was taken in Windsor Great Park, at the end of the Long Walk. The Copper Horse is a statue of King George III, commissioned by his son King George IV. It is said that the man who designed the statue hung himself in the nearby forest, as he had forgotten to put in the stirrups, and knew he would face his death at the hand of the king for his mistake!
My second photo was also taken in Windsor Great Park, though a bit further away. At the Roman ruins of Leptis Magna, beautiful as they were, I couldn’t help but capture this moment, as a lone man walked around the ruins, contemplating them slowly.
My final picture was taken in the USA, though you will have to forgive me as I have forgotten which park it was taken in! It’s in Pennsylvania, and near to York, but that’s all I can remember… I love this photo, the way the sunset catches the flag and the trees … I would give anything to go back to that evening!
Until next time …
