Photohunters: Black

This is another photohunters theme where the possible choices are endless. First, a Canada goose with a long black neck.

Reflections in the water which are black.

It's hard to shoot the sunset from my house once the trees leaf out because I end up with dense black silhouettes of the foliage.
Photobucket
I prefer the bare trees for shooting sunsets but in spite of all the black foliage, I liked these recent sunset shots.
Photobucket
Photohunters post their links at the Home of the Hunt beginning Saturday mornings.

Sorry if this is a duplicate (my first comment seems to have disappeared).

Love your sunset photos and esp. love that reflection in the lake. Beautiful shot!

And yes, The Man in Black is Johnny Cash! I figured you'd know that. :)

great selection, when the theme lends itself to wide interpretations the harder it seems to choose.

happy weekend.

Hello CarverFriend,

The silhouettes are really lovely! I happen to love the color black as I wear it every day.

I am a tri-color Beagle and a very good dog.

Love, EmmaDog

Marta said...

Excellent and diverse selection. I have similar challenge on sunsets from my house but your shots do capture the mood of the evening.

Manang Kim said...

Funny because I almost used some of the same kinds of shots. Very well done and I like this take on the theme! Enjoy your weekend.

I kind of had to stop and take two or three looks at the goose

Really nice shots in this post. I also admired some of your earlier posts.

I live in Brookville, Ohio and am an old man at 75 and have been married to the same lady for 55 years. Got 5 adult children, and three are past 50.

I began taking photos in 1953 when I was in the service stationed in Japan. I have been at it ever since.

My problem with digital images is that I can take 100 to 500 in one sitting trying to get that perfect image of a bird doing something nobody else has ever seen before. I think I got at least one.

This one shows a young grackle being fed and the youngster is showing his teeth.

Go to My Birds Blog to see it.

I love what you've done with the black theme. I find it very interesting that black is the photohunt theme for May 1st which begins Melanoma awareness month.
