Shadow Shot Sunday


Shadow Shots are fun! Why not join us. Go to see Tracy at Hey Harriet to read about it.


I love trees. This one is definitely one of my favorites, and every once in a while I just have to stop and take its picture.

Yes...trees certainly change the perspective.

Some have a lot of character. And if you get real close it can whisper words of wisdom in your heart.

Venerable tree
shakes its shaggy head at me
so invitingly…

Beautiful tree-I can see why it's one of your favorites!
What kind is it?

frayedattheedge said...

I agree with you about trees - there is one near us that I take regular photos of!!

Ralph said...

This is a lovely tree! The tree has character, each big limb following its own unique trail toward the sun. Naturally, the shadows are as expansive and unique as the subject. That is a beautiful yard sitting within sun and shade...

Dianne said...

that is a grand old tree
I love how it reaches out, embracing all around it

I share your love of trees Bobbie, they are good souls

Carin said...

Not only the tree is lovely but also its surroundings!

Enjoy your Sunday!

A well manicured lawn, with flowers and trees can't beat that scenery. Looks like the tree is too old already but looking good. Happy Sunday!

Tree shadows remind me of my grandparents' garden. So lovely!

I bet that tree senses that you love it and smiles inside when it sees you with your camera. :)

That is a gorgeous tree and what fine shadows the old fellow casts! You've captured them perfectly. Happy SSS to you.

I too love trees! And all the fascinating shapes and textures of tree trunks particularly fascinate me! Great photos!

Sarah said...

That tree has such character. I can see why you love it!

What great photos, and what a wonderful tree.

My first thought was that it could have been one of the "Tree Folk" from the Lord of the Rings. The last shot looks to me like it is trying to talk.

Sweet Repose said...

I am proud to be a tree-hugger too, what a grand old specimen!

Beverley Baird said...

What an awesome tree Bobbie! Oh to climb a tree like that - every kid's dream!

Hey Harriet said...

I can see why this tree is one of your faves! It's lovely. It looks like it would be a fun one to climb. For those with more energy than I have... :)

I love trees & it's shadows too. Specially when wind blows gently? Lovely, indeed!
