Do you have exterior lighting on the house? Carriage lights at the door, and perhaps on the garage? What about the front yard? Walk up to your front door in the dark and what do you see? Probably not much. Silhouetting is a great technique to bring a beautiful tree into view at night. Place a spotlight between the house and the tree, and aim the spot at the house. The light instantly throws the tree into relief. This technique differs from landscape lighting the tree where multiple up-lights illuminate the canopy of a tree in a three-dimensional fashion. Silhouetting is fascinating to look at in the right application.
