Carrying on the silhouette theme…
A firefighter works to stamp out the flames at a burning landscape nursery off Sierra Highway in Canyon Country, CA.
The comments thread below the original post really is worth reading. It includes a debate about “Gaia’s revenge” and how cities like LA have been sucking the water/life out of the land around them for decades; a fact which – at least according to some of the people commenting – has lead to the current state of affairs.
I’m sure we are all responsible for much of the increased environmental volatility in today’s world but the underlying reasons do not mitigate the human suffering involved — something I thought environmentalists, of all people, would be quick to recognise!
Tag search ‘silhouette’. The most aesthetically pleasing picture of a gull I have ever seen.
The word silhouette has an interesting origin. This from wiki:
A silhouette is a view of some object or scene consisting of the outline and a featureless interior. The word is an eponym named after Etienne de Silhouette, a finance minister of Louis XV who in 1759 imposed such harsh economic demands upon the French people that his name became synonymous with anything done or made cheaply.
Today’s tag search is ‘silhouette’. Great shot, it really draws you in. Cinematic – captures the imagination.
Clever stuff. I like it when people experiment and get creative.
