Travel Theme: Silhouette

Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme this week is Silhouette.

Silhouette is defined as the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible against a lighter background, esp. in dim light.

Because I struggled to find any silhouette in my photo collection, I had to recheck if I understood the word correctly, and after much digging I came up with these🙂

Do we have reindeers as well in SA?

    what a lovely series I had no idea you had reindeer as well and I love the windmill shot

      Thanks Jo. The reindeer still remains a mystery, it could have been a fallow deer.

    OOH what a lovely surprise to see the deer. That´s a great shot!

    Lovely series of silhouette photos 🙂

      It was a lovely surprise to the deer since the area was actually a trout farm. Thanks Marianne:-)

      Well this business of reindeers still remains a mystery, it could have been fallow deers, of course we saw in Dullstroom. I would actually love to know more myself:-)

      Thanks J. Yep! we do seem to have it all in SA, even snow of late. Before you know it, we’ll be taking up ice-hockey as a sport…:-)
