Shadow Shot Sunday

Tracy brings us Shadow Shot Sunday each week. I hope that she and all of you had or are having the happiest of holidays.

As you may have heard, the eastern coast of the U.S. had quite a storm last week. Here in our part of Cape May County we were pretty lucky. Not nearly so bad as some. In my town we only got about 4 or 5 inches of snow, but very high winds. My shadows today are of the morning after.

What could this be?

Oh yes, the newspaper delivery. The wind moved it across the lawn.

This was the scene out my front door. How come the plow always piles the snow in such a way that the mailman can't deliver unless someone gets out there and shovels? At least, this time around, it wasn't too terrible.

And then, a few days later when I decided to take the car out, my daughter cleaned off what was left of the snow. She left some on top, and as I waited for her to come out of the drug store, melting snow trickled down the windshield, and made interesting lines of shadow on the dash and reflections in the glass.

Interesting shadows, Bobbie. I like the pattern that the newspaper made on the snow.

What lovely, snowy shadows, Bobbie! I love them! I know it's cold and can be a pain, but your neighborhood looks lovely in it's white blanket! Hope you had a great Christmas and here's wishing you a very Happy New Year!

There is nothing better than a lot of snow and a bit o'sun. The shadows are nice, but that pattern of arcs from the drifting is stunning! And like our carrier, the red bags make the newspaper easier ti find! Snow is not my friend generally, but the lighting and shadows are the biggest upside to Winter. Happy New Year!

Hey Harriet said...

I love all of your snowy photos. They're quite a treat for me as I sit here melting in the heat. Wishing you the very best for the New year Bobbie!

What lovely snowy scenes with subtle shadows. Love the trail of the newspaper and the beautiful reflections and shadows in that last shot! Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas with your family. Asilomar has such a beautiful beach! This weekend I'm sharing a mosaic of shadowy photos that I took in Hemet, CA on Christmas Eve. Happy Shadow Shot Sunday!
Hugs and blessings,

Thankfully, the snow has melted in my neck of the woods.
