Photo Hunt #1: Dark

This is my first time to join . In this first attempt to find pictures to fit the theme which this week is Dark in photos I of course went to night pictures first. This unfortunately slightly blurred picture is of the Scott Memorial (Sir William Scott) in Edinburgh, Scotland. I was fortunate to get to visit there this past June.

Then I thought of this wonderful silhouette of darkened Sequoya cacti taken just as the sun was setting that I took back in '05 while visiting in Tucson, AZ. An accidental photo that has become one of my favorites.

This fourth of July my daughters, son-in-law, and granddaughter look to a dark sky as fireworks are being shot off over the bay.
Or this picture that seems to say "What mysteries lie in the darkness of the cave just beyond the clear water and bright sun." This picture was taken at a private alcove close to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
