Silence is a tough nut to crack since all photos are silent as we look at them. Some of course convey the sounds we have all experienced but we are looking for the one that conveys lack of sounds.

For people who live in the northern climates where snow abounds during January, the woods can be very quiet, perhaps we would say silent. This was taken in the deep woods, away from civilization, on a very quiet afternoon. If one stood still, you could hear yourself breath and not much more.

Wandering along a trail, I came upon this stump with snow built up on it. The snow had sagged just a bit so I could see an imaginary head. It needed a little definition so without destroying the shape, I was able to add two eyes, a nose and mouth – then capture the picture with only the click of the camera.
