Shadow Shot Sunday
January 23, 2011
I haven’t participated in Shadow Shot Sunday for quite some time. Seems like I’ve been busy and when I finally get around to thinking about it, it’s Monday in OZ! Well, it probably still is closer to Monday than it is Sunday in Australia, but it’s very early in the morning on Sunday where I am, so I’m going for it.
Today I have a photo from a recent weekend sojourn on my way up to Lake Superior. It had snowed the night before this photo was taken and the snow was crisp and white. Ni was rounding a curve on a less traveled County Road in Douglas County, Wisconsin. County Road A.
A friend of mine loves trains. I thought of her when I pulled over to take the shot, but I also noticed the shadows from the morning Winter sun. That sun is low in the sky around here this time of year, that’s why it’s so hot and humid in Hey Harriet land and so cold here.
By the way, visit the Hey Harriet Blog and see many more great examples of the shadow shot as well as some guidelines in the event you’d like to participate.
The train was sitting on the siding. It had been there a while, as when I crossed the tracks a few moments earlier, I saw the fresh snow from last nights mini storm still on the tracks. I thought how mysterious that the train cars would be filled with logs cut from the surrounding forest, and while it sits, the shadows of the trees, probably their tree brothers and sisters, seem to be coming up the embankment of the tracks to ‘visit’. Maybe the train has stopped at the funeral parlor for trees and this is the visitation. At least this is what I imaginned for a spell.
Take care and be well, all of you.
