Exotic Silhouette Photos to Inspire Your Travels

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

I love them for what I don't see as much as for what I do.


( A golden sunset falls on the ancient temples of Bagan, Myanmar )

Sure you can see more when it's light, but perhaps it's the darkness that inspires the imagination.

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 )


(A lone bull giraffe under the fading light of a Kenyan sunset )


(One of the most extraordinary sunsets of my travels in Kenya)
