Shadow Shot Sunday - 1/03

Shadows falling on snow.

This was taken on 1/1/10 through the window of my family room.  Foreground fence is mine.  Everything else belongs to the neighbors.






The sun, bringing light
But no warmth, casts images
Of bare trees on snow

hahah, that looks so familiar - just like in Finland!
It's a good idea to shoot neighborg's house - otherwise all SSS gang would come to your house! :)
Happy SSS!

Cold shadows on snow,
day will soon give way to dark—
come, let us seek fire.

Bring on the Band Shadows!

Nice shots of the shadows on the snow. I can't imagine being that cold. I guess I shouldn't complain about the cold here in Florida. Warm wishes!

And Happy New Year to you! My shadow may be a bench mark, as you said, but yours are tree marks! Thanks for coming by! It's nice to meet a fellow jazz lover.

Snow and shadow mingle on the landscape in an artistic look of your neighborhood. The shadows are cold, the sun warm. The perfect natural blend...

Looks cold but not uninviting. Shadows always make winter sing for me, even though I don't like the cold!

Greetings from Massachusetts, where it is cold and snowy too!
