Scenes in silhouette are shrouded in drama and mystery, and more than a drop or two of romance.

Take a moment to look at the following photos, and you tell me... don't you want to go?
( A lone acacia dwarfed by a Masai Mara sunset)
( Men repair a decaying arch in the Ananda Temple in Bagan, Myanmar )
( The fog rises over Inle Lake just before sunrise in Myanmar )
( Rain, clouds, not to mention the vultures in the acacia, make this sunset on Masai Mara in Kenya especially dramatic )
( Camels on the massive salmon-colored dunes of the Sahara desert in Morocco )
