This being Sunday here in the USA, it's time for Shadow Shot Sunday. I like this meme. It was started by Tracy who lives near Brisbane, Australia. For more wonderful Shadow Shots and posting guidelines, go to her blog, Hey Harriet
This shot I post today looks like a Winter scene with those high snow banks and long shadows from those beautiful pine trees. But it was taken in June while on a motorcycle trip with my good friend Hal. We were in Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park, Colorado. Some years, the snow is gone by June, others, as you can see in this photo, the snow has lingered into the Summer months.
I like the crisp lines of the shadows and the clear blue sky. The weather was warm enough, but with all the snow cover, the air felt chilled a bit, somewhat like the air just outside the refrigerator door when you hold it open looking for a snack. I also like the shadows in the snowbank, made from the lines the snowplow made months before the photo was taken, when it cleared the roadway.
