The witching hour

I was up early one morning to capture an image of the park across the road from us, as it was shrouded in the mist and looked quite eerie. I felt the shots were somewhat bland to start with, until Wallace, our Siamese cat, decided to join me.

Cats are not the easiest of animals to photograph at the best of times, but try it in the dark when they are on the prowl and refuse to cooperate and it is almost impossible. Here he paused long enough to coincide with the shutter speed and give me a nice silhouette.

What a fantastic capture, Max!! You're right about cats being almost impossible to photograph, but your timing was perfect! I love it!! Hope both yours and Wallaces week is going well!!

Very nice pic. Unusual indeed.

From a cat, that is the best of cooperation. Unless they are asleep, of course.

This is a wonderful shot! It would make a good Halloween picture. I'm glad Wallace paused for a moment so you could capture him in silhouette.

De"light"ful capture Max. Love the silhouette Wallace created. Happy Easter.
