Volcano Silhouette

On Friday room 17 were doing silhouette pictures with our teacher Ms Crowther. Silhouette pictures are when the sky turns into a really beautiful red and when you look at a tree it isn't really green it is black.
I have done a silhouette picture of a volcano because that is what we are learning about.
