2020 Photo Challenge #21 – Contre Jour

One of my favourite ways to take images, given the chance

Here are a few from the archives

This was one of the first I remember taking, at the Rocher de Dabo, in Alsace



This one, taken in Krakow a couple of years ago was a serendipitous moment as the woman walked towards the light beyond the doorway, creating a silhouette

…and looking up the platform one blazing hot afternoon:

And here I shot towards the light, through this Allium…gave it a more sparkly effect

Allium contre jour

Linked to 2020 Photo challenge at Jude’s here




  1. Gorgeous. The first one is like a screen set cut out, the second and third have such wonderful light and atmosphere, and you know I can’t resist a sparkling flower. Thanks Sue for all your lovely contributions.

  2. The Krakow one is elegant 🤗💕💕

  3. Yes, nice examples, and a trip down Memory Lane for you as well.

    • Sue

      Indeed, Dabo two decades ago, Krakow a couple of years ago,and the Bluebell railway last year, each with different company

  4. Something you use a lot in your photos. Ideal for this challenge, Sue. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Love the allium, this assignment is right up your alley Sue

  6. ooh can see you love it, you are sooooo good
