The subject of this week’s photo challenge is the word “Shadow“. I have taken the liberty of addressing this topic in the plural. I find that shadows are an essential element to the character of many of the pictures I take, especially in nature. Here are some typical examples. I suspect that these pictures would look rather bland without the play of light and shadows on the ground.Perhaps some of these pictures could also be appropriate for a topic like “shade”.And then there are these pictures that are perhaps closer to the expected interpretation. This is the shadow of the aircraft I took the picture from.A beach at sunset offers the opportunity to tackle a distorted shadow or two in a picture.I like the picture below because it illustrates different aspects of the shadow, all in one shot. You can have a shadow, have your features be framed by your own shadow, or be in the shadows.
