Weekly photo challenge: Silhouette

Silhouette” has come up again as a theme for the weekly photo challenge. (The last time was in October 2012.) And again, we turn to our nearest neighbor, using its light to throw other objects in silhouette.

Almost bookends

We’ve seen a bit of unsettled weather in Arkansas over the last two days. Not ideal for meteor or Super Moon watching, but the sunrises and sunsets have been spectacular. These two are bookends for the last 48 hours.
