Weekly Photo Challenge: Between
I have once again taken the easy way out on this challenge. My photo is of the time between day and night. Its that awesome time of day when details get muted and there is a feeling of mystery as nighttime arrives. For a photographer, the challenge is to catch that remaining light of day while using the oncoming darkness to enhance the feeling of the scene. One of the ways to capture this transition is the use of silhouettes against the fading light. This photo was taken in the Northern Serengeti as we were rushing back to camp as we had to be out of the park by “sundown”. I saw this giraffe framed against the color of the sunset and asked our guide to stop just long enough to catch this quick shot. I hope this captures the transition between day and night and also the serenity of the evening in an incredible environment.
