Theme Thursday: Silhouette

It's Theme Thursday and this week's theme is silhouette.  We have a cool old elm tree in our backyard.  I've taken cool pictures of it in the fog and the snow so when I saw that the theme this week was silhouette, I knew I wanted to use the tree.

The problem this week has been the weather.  It's been cloudy and rainy and you need a light source behind your object..  It was finally sort of clear this morning so I headed outside with the camera and tried to get some good shots.  HA!

It was too dark so I tried adjusting my camera to no avail and then I went inside unloaded the dishwasher and came back out to take some more pictures hoping that the sun would be up a bit more or that the clouds would have parted.  And of course, by this time, it was too light.  I'm sure if I knew how to operate this camera a little better I could have gotten a better shot but here's what I got.






 Head over to Michaela's where I'm sure you will see some really nice silhouettes.

Wow those are great. We have had terrible light this week too and nothing I've taken has turned out well.
