Blackbird at Twilight

This week’s photo challenge is a cool one, but I was lucky to have something at all for it.  Silhouettes aren’t a type of photo I do often.  I should change that, really.  Silhouettes are pretty dang cool.

The photo I picked is one I took on Isla Mujeres a number of years ago.  The sky was a perfect blue ombre that contrasted nicely against the almost black of the hut & the bird.  That bird was ever-so-cooperative and actually stayed put long enough for me to grab the shot.
