Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Branches and Me

This meme, all the way from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia is just too fun to resist! Hey Harriett hosts a weekly shadow search and shoot "that capture the play between light & shadow".
With morning just breaking over a light covering of snow I caught a few shots before the shadows vanished from the cloud cover.
The sun peeked out just long enough to see the silhouette of a dormant lilac bush on the shed doors.
Trying not to get in the way I realized I was making my own rather interesting shadow!

So glad you joined the SSS fun! My fave is the dormant lilac bush shadow, but each is beautiful! Happy New Year, and hope to see more of your SS too! Jane in St Louis

Ha - caught in your own shadow. You look frozen and who could blame you when you are surrounded by all that beautiful snow. Hope you have thawed out by now.

Hey Harriet said...

These are wonderful photos! Thanks ever so much for joining in Shadow Shot Sunday! Careful now, it's addictive. A good fun healthy kind of addiction ;D

Fun shadows from your chilly world. I added your link to my reader to quickly look through some of your previous posts and think I'll leave it there so I can visit again as time permits. Raider's adorable and clearly well-loved. It seems we participate in some of the same weekly activities but somehow methinks I missed your lovely post about Scarborough Bridge ... so I'm glad I saw it today. Thanks for visiting my 'tamale' reflections. Have a lovely Sunday ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Love the last one best. Nice shadows!

I love the shadow shots. Especially against the snow. Love the contrast!

Cassie said...

That barren lilac bush casts a fine shadow. My 4 bushes up in N.Idaho are much smaller than yours and if the deer get too hungry this winter, they might be gone all together!

Just love your little Raider! Does he have his own blog yet?? Mine are in DogsWithBlogs and I get the biggest kick out of that.

Thanks for visiting my blog and your sweet comments. Blessings, Cassie

PS-We have a "son" in Uganda with Compassion Intl. His "adoption" was a birthday gift to me at a Fernando Ortega concert about 8 years ago. He is 16 now.That is an excellent organization. I'll keep your little girl in prayer...the quake was a horrible thing.
