Shadow Shot Sunday #72



Once again, Tracy, of Hey Harriet is hosting Shadow Shot Sunday for us. Thanks, Tracy!


Before summer disappears completely, here are a few memories from the garden. The sun, shining through a cosmo.



The butterfly bush still has many blooms.



And this pattern of shadows from the leaves of the plane tree, on its trunk.

Wonderful to see sun still shining around the world.

We don't have sun nowadays. Just having windy, rainy and very chilly days & nights.

Your shots are to be envied of, like I am.

Happy SS

The sycamore brings back such memories. I lived in Rochester, NY 18 years and we have an urban forest in Rochester. One street has huge sycamores. Brian and I would often take evening walks through our urban forest. The ice storm of 1991 was so hard on us. So many old trees were cut down because they said the damage to them made them dangerous. Most of the sycamores survived but so many of the giant silver maples didn't.
The Arizona sycamores are different from our plane trees in the East. Their barks are just shades of grey.

Beautiful shadows. Butterfly bush is lovely. I have no luck growing them, but husband calls me "black thumb", so maybe that has something to do with it. The tree shadow looks so lacy and soft..
Happy SSS.

Too bad there weren't any butterflies flitting around on the bush! I really love those swimming leaf shadows on the tree trunk. They seem to have a life of their own.

The shadows left by the plant are beautiful in its lacy complexity. The leaves of the tree provide a protective shadow for the tree and grasses of well. The simplicity of the shadow in the flower is beautiful. Nice!

All lovely, but my eye returns again and again to the last one of the shadow-dappld tree trunk. Truly spectacular photo.

Catherine said...

Jonny Hamachi said...

The flower, the trunk, great stuff.

Rambling Woods said...

The trunk effect is really nice Bobbie. I still have a few blooms on the butterfly bush and a couple of blooms here and there..but the summer is gone...sigh....

Have always loved butterfly bushes, the Budliar(?) I think; all your shadows are interesting, the last one particularly crisp.

Frost is on its way
