giant tree shadow in the suburbs



























we had some sun in the early morning yesterday but it was gone before I could start taking pictures. I snapped this giant shadow sometime in december before all of the snow started falling.

This is gorgeous. This is what winter shadows are all about, decorating white houses! Really.

Hey Harriet said...

That house is a perfect canvas for decorative shadows! How lovely! And I like the round shrubs. I often see those and think to myself how clever they are to grow so perfectly round like that. And I wonder why mine don't. I must have bought the duds! ;D

Thanks so much for your kind words about my photo blocks!

Your photo is sooooooooooo charming!!! It's like a welcoming mat to enter the home and find friendship and/or a family filled with warmth.

Mine this week is a heron casting its shadow near the marina.

Very interesting shot. That is one big tree.

It's interesting how the tree fits the house!

Lily, you always seem to capture the most wonderful images. I love a sunny day in winter the shadows seems so much crisper than in summer.

This is a great shot, even though not recent. I browsed back a bit and see that you were really hit by snow! Some here, but it's almost all gone.

this is my first Shadow Shot Sunday- and I had to go back in time for a captured shadow
I like your crystal clear capture of the shadow and branches. Very well done.
