I have been thinking about my summers spent at the dig at Lachish this week. This is mainly because of the announcements of some discoveries at Lachish this week. See my post: The Lachish Latrine
While looking for some pictures to use tomorrow in my Sunday morning Bible class I had a few pictures catch my eye.
For my post tonight you get some silhouettes from the dig at Lachish.
Here we have a beautiful sunset with striking silhouettes from a Sunday at the dig. We start the dig on a Sunday and work in the afternoon. It is the only day of the week when we get to see a Sunset at the Dig.
I really like these silhouettes of the workers climbing up the path.
Some of the bushes grow as large as small trees and at the time of year that we dig they have lost their leaves. In this case the seed pods are still hanging on the branches of the bush and make for wonderful silhouetted images.
Here is a picture of the same bush taken just a few seconds before the image above. In this picture the camera had a longer exposure time (1/40 vs. 1/8 of a second). Here we lost the beautiful sky, but still have some nice silhouettes.
I hope you enjoyed these beautiful silhouettes. Now back to working on my lesson for tomorrow.
