Oh my what a contrast to your other photo of this scene! As far as the shadows go, I prefer this one. The shadows look spectacular against that brick wall!

Hope you have a wonderful week :)

A little bird told me it's your birthday today so I've popped in to wish you a Happy Happy one. Love this photograph - such beautiful light and shade and that bench looks so invitied.

Pop on over to Menton DP or Monte Carlo DP where we are celebrating our 3rd birthday!

The blue of the bench is striking against the complexity of the tree and its shadows. Lovely. AND, Happy birthday, dear Lily ~ wishing you a beautiful day and weekend!!

That is a super shadow dwarfing the bench underneath the stark tree! But o how creative and artistic the shadow looks!

Bibi said...

Lovely photo, which does indeed look more beautiful when enlarged.

Happy Birthday!

This scene is just as beautiful now as it was in autumn. Hope you'll share it with us again in spring and summer. Also hope that you're having a very happy birthday! (I left a small something for you on my blog.)

I love the balance of this shot...who would've thought that the shadow would take center stage??!

Interesting contrast between fall and winter. This winter shot creates very interesting shadows.

I love this photo and the one taken in Autumn. I love how the naked tree looks against the background of the brick wall.

I love that empty bench. ;-)
