Shadows

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.img_7103OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPerhaps some of these pictures could also be appropriate for a topic like “shade”.img_7116OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnd 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.img_2577A beach at sunset offers the opportunity to tackle a distorted shadow or two in a picture.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI 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.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
