This Moment- A single Photo : June 10th

{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment you want to pause, savour and remember. “This Moment” is a ritual found on Life inspired by the Wee Man which I then kidnapped from Almost there by Sarah-Jane.


And borrowed often from whomsoever is carting it around. But a great idea and credit to the originators!
 Here's my moment from last week. I'll send you a Namibian dollar if you can guess where I shot this!

I love the contrast of the sun's warm glow and the silhouette of the ancient tree. Beautiful.

Oh wow Jim! Wow! I love this! Is this desert or ocean? And is that an old decrepit tree?

Oh who cares...I love this! Nice work!

Here's my moment (even though I know you already stopped by for a peek *grin*)....http://really-wait-what.blogspot.com/2011/06/friday-moment-61011.html

Correct continent Nancie but wrong country. Great place for taking photos of sunrise/sets though.

Thanks Jessica. I moved around to take the shot to create the effect of the old ancient baobab reaching out for the sun's warmth.

JIM.You gotta get yourself across to Africa. This last trip I paid more attention to what and how I was taking photos than ever, thanks to your suggestions and encouragemt in the past. New camera helps to.

These types of photos (sunsets/sun rises) are my favorite types of photos :) That tree almost looks like one that could be used for a Halloween advertisement :)

Great lighting a composition! I love the tree against the sun. I have no idea where this is but it sure looks like someplace I'd love to visit.
