Silhouette of Painted Stork against the Sun Rise

A silhouette normally refers to the outline of an object or thing with just a black interior void of any details. There is always a sense of drama conveyed through silhouettes since they arrest the viewer’s attention despite lack of details. The most important point being that the background light has to be more than the foreground and the backdrop has to be of a lighter shade than the object being captured. Here these painted storks have been captured against the the golden hue  of  the sunrise to give a breathtakingly beautiful image.
