A January Shadow

On a sunny winter afternoon, we get to see some long shadows.

I'm showing a second version, cropped drastically. Notice something unusual?

P.S. I want to thank Black and White Weekend for spotlighting my picture of a spider web.


  1. I love the way this kind of light makes legs look so long! Your cropped photo makes it look like a biblical figure walking on water :)

  2. Intriguing photo Linda. I like this shadow shot. Thank you for visiting when I was away on vacation. I am back now and slowly catching up.

  3. It seems the shadows are different this time of year, maybe it is the tress not having leaves.

    1. Actually I stood behind my husband so you are seeing extra arms. One of mine is bent and holding the camera.

  5. For some reason I'm thinking ninja with swords.

  6. Cool shadow shot. I like Dragonstar's interpretation above.

  7. no one can jump over his shadow! P.

  8. Shade and shadows can add so much to a photograph.

    All the best Jan

  9. I think I have Star Wars on the brain with the new release. Immediately I thought of a saber wielding Star Wars figure. An interesting one.
