Shadow Shot Sunday

Decided to participate in Shadow Shot Sunday again this week, though I don't have that many shots - and I didn't want to bore everyone with more pictures of tree shadows on my neighbor's front lawn. Gets pretty repetitive after a while. I did include one from a different part of the yard that's a bit different, I hope. Shadow Shot Sunday hosted over at Hey Harriet's blog and if you like shadows (as I do), check out all the wonderful posts featuring shadows of all kinds. Here's what I came up with for this week.

Not sure this icicle really counts as having shadows or
is just kind of made of light and shadow, but I like the
reflectionsin the drop... You can see my little house.

Different spot in my neighbor's yard...

Angel and Tara Grace graciously made shadows for me
behind the curtains.


I contemplated saving this one for Ruby Tuesday but... these are my new prayer flags.

Hopefully, I can get someone to hang them for me in the near future.

That's it for me. May all your shadows be beautiful.

Love the kitty shadows!
I keep forgetting about this meme. I guess I better write it down. I've been looking for something different to do.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I love the Kitty shadows too!
& your house in the icicle is really neat.
Happy SSS!

I love the shadows in ice! Very creative. The cat shadows are so sharp and beautiful too. The prayer flags are more subtle.

Hey Harriet said...

These are all great shadow shots. Especially the kitty shadows. Love the dark cat shadows against the green! The house in the icicle is neat!

Yay! Prayer flags. I have them also. You could always repost the shot for Ruby Tuesday if you have no other reds on the day. I'm sure the wonderful Mary wouldn't mind. I hope you find someone to hang your flags soon. Until then you could maybe just string them up somewhere around your house near a window to appreciate them :)

Love the icicle shot, shadows twisting and turning in frozen curves and drips...another skiff of snow shades our clear images this morning in Iowa.

Have a wonderful day!

Look how many shadows you found for us! Lucky! The cat shadows are great - love the icicle too, very fitting with the season!

Perfect icicle, Katherine! Lovely kitty kat shadows! :) Where do the prayer flags have to be hung, Katerine?

Sylvia K said...

Love the kitty shadows and the icicle! Actually, I love all of them! Thanks for sharing!

Dianne said...

the green is so lovely! and apparently the girls really like it too :)

Hot Fudge said...

As I view your wonderful shots, contemplating another hot, steamy day here in Brisbane, Australia, your icicle looks soooo cool!

Finding Pam said...

Angel and Tara Grace are the perfect models for that shot. I am trying to figure out which shadow goes with which cat. I think the first one is Angel and the second photo is Tara Grace?

As always lovely photos like the icicle is so fascinating and well as the trees, yard and prayer banners.

Stay warm and blessings.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Oh, I love your shadow shots! All of them, but particularly the cat shadows.

Really lovely, Raven.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Oh, I forgot to comment on your new prayer flags. May they bring you much happiness and peace.

Olga said...

The second one is my favorite: looks like such a peaceful day.

Claire, said...

Awesome icicle shadow, I do see your house! So many curtain shadow shots this week, they are the best. You kitties are adorable too.

Raven said...

Thanks everybody.

Finding Pam - It's Tara Grace behind the curtain in the first two shots and Angel in the third.

Twinkle Star Art said...

They are fantastic shadow shots. Well done! Love the icicle.

Rebecca said...

very cool icicle's - would not have thought of that, very creative

Debbie said...

So many great shots. I love the kitties, but the icicle with the reflection of your house is amazing!

Kat said...

I love all these, but my favourite is the last cat photo, it really looks so dramtic with the cat and the sunlight streaming on her face, the green cotton curtains make sucha wonderful texture on top of it too..

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Your kitties are so cooperative! Way to go, Angel and Tara Grace. And your icicle and drop are very creative.

Gallery Juana said...

Thanks for coming by my blog. Great to see you on shadow shot sunday again!

The icicle photo with the drop is amazing. And, I can never resist cat photos! These came out great.

Carin said...

Especially like the cat shadows.
That icycle makes me think of cold and of that we have enough over here.

PJ said...

My goodness, Raven! Your house IS there in the very tip! Your kitties are very cooperative, for kitties. What are the prayer flags?

Pia K said...

And I though I'd be the first one commenting about how lovely the kitty+curtain ones are, no such luck...;)

Tessa said...

Wonderfully subtle shadows in the icicle. Beautiful shot.

Creative 'shadow shot' sharing ... I enjoyed them all! I participated for the first time with a Shadow Shot collage in my Sunday post at Sacred Ruminations.
Hugs and blessings,
