Shadow Shot Sunday


Thanks to Tracy for hosting Shadow Shots Sunday for us each week.

A couple of weeks ago I saw a beautiful sunset from my back deck. The birds sitting on the wires seemed to be enjoying it, but I was disappointed that all of those wires got in the way.



As I turned back into the kitchen, I caught sight of the reflection of the sunset in the glass of the door. Lovely shadows and light. No wires that you could notice.



I even enjoyed the sight of the sunset filtered through the curtain.


Winter sunsets can be very nice. But oh, how I long for spring at this point. According to Michelle, at Rambling Woods, it is just one month, two weeks and four days away!

Beautiful sunset photo and you have to thank for it to the reflection.
I love those bare branch silhouettes in backlight.

Ralph said...

The wires add a focal point to the view, drawing our eyes up and beyond the wires to the lovely cloudy formation. Lovely reflection, and the shadow feels warm even with the faint sunglow. Lovely winter pictures!

What beautiful captures, Bobbie! Love seeing the sunset through the curtains and in the reflections! Like you I'd rather be enjoying warm, spring/summer sunsets, but guess we have to take what we get!

I am a sunset lover specially with the reflections on the water? Ahhh... can die for.

You really catched the best photo of sunset.

Yes, so nice with winter sunset. In Sweden you can see the midnight sun? That's one to dream of to experience to see. Magical feelings.

Have a great SSS.

A lot of thought went into your shots. Beautiful. I get annoyed when the wires get in the way also..
Happy SSS.

So pretty and delicate - I can't imagine what it's like to be cold at the moment - Sydney is very hot and muggy today!

Hey Harriet said...

These are great. And spring is just around the corner. Yay!

Pesky wires are a pet peeve of mine also. They are always getting in the way of my shots :)
