a morning silhouette…

Tree Silhouette

This beautiful tree is on the University of Pittsburgh campus between the Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Chapel.  I took the photo at approximately 5am during the 1st annual Relay For Life at Pitt, just as the morning sun was starting to come up!  An Olympus Stylus 820 was used to capture this delicate silhouette.

    Hello there, Bellaitaliana!

    That is a grand silhouette!

    Very symmetrical, and still
    filling the sky with shape
    in every possible direction.

    Nice work you have here! Uncle Tree

      Thank you very much! That was pretty much my favorite tree at my undergrad university and it certainly looked best in the early morning light!

    • It really does look as if it is guarding the sky! I rather like that interpretation. When I took the picture, I was pretty much just taken by how beautifully the tree was contrasted against the sky and the mysterious vibe that it was giving off in the early morning light. It just looked positively ancient and like it had many stories to tell (if it could speak). Considering that tree is in the middle of the university campus…and has been for at least 50 years…I’m sure it truly has “seen” a lot!
