Foto Friday – Silhouette


This photo was taken at the Jensen Nature Park in Syracuse, Utah last month as the sun was trying to set. I really liked how the details of the plant (can’t remember what it’s called!) stood out against the beautiful sky. The clouds were parting in such an interesting way and I loved how it framed the shot.

In post-processing, I simply used a Lightroom preset which completely blackened out the foreground and brightened up the background while adding a vignette. Simple as that!

I’ve added two other pictures I took that evening to our Jensen Nature Park flickr set. They are “Double Barbed Wire” and “Thistle”.


  1. Two names come to my mind, one is cattails and the other reef. It is a plant where water stands still or it can be seen in a swamp. I love that picture. You sure make some of thebest and you should keep them in a collection. (for later).
