Fences sure do make great shadows! I love the fun shadows on the steps, with diamond shapes of the chain-link and the zigzag of the posts.

Mama Zen said...

I really like the steps!

Neat shadow ideas! That bright sunshine certainly looks good and inviting from snowy here! Happy New Year to you.

Ginny said...

These are great shadows. So sharp. I had to click on them, it was so hard to believe that that was really a shadow on the steps. But I love that beautiful big tree!! What kind is it? Could you sometime do a post just about the tree?

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Love this! I particularly like the shot of the steps with the shadow of what looks like a patterned runner on them. Love that it's the shadow of the fence!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Garden Buddha grows
in wisdom among shadows
and sun-speckled stones.


Bring on the Band Shadows!

my favorite is the lattice like shadows on the steps but when I come back to look again I'll have a new favorite because they're all so good

Cool shadows!
Happy New Year!

Very creative shots. Seeing the beauty in a shadow is really a good thing. It must have slowed you down long enough to really see what was there.
