Shadow Shot Sunday

It's been quite a while since I participated in Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday and I've missed it. Since I last posted a month ago, robins, crows and grackles have been building nests, Spring has greened the grass, the daffodils have come up, the forsythia and my flowering quince are full of blossoms. The mountains are still biding their time getting their green robes on, but they did offer a few shadows. Anyway, I've taken lots and lots of pictures after the doldrums of a very long winter. What I lack in quality, I make up for in quantity.















Sorry my windows are so yucky dirty, but she's too darned cute not
to post. Tara Grace has been camera shy so alas
I have no pictures of her this go-around.






HAPPY SUNDAY!

You must be so conscious of the changing seasons, living in such a fresh and open place.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comment.

Hey Harriet said...

Wow! You've given your camera a good workout here! These are all great and I'm happy to see you join in SSS again. Welcome back. We missed you! Enjoy your Sunday :)

What a thoroughly delightful series of shots. You've captured the personality in all the critters (including the sleeping puss!) and the blossoms are lovely. Thanks for the lift!

Wonderful!

I'm a sucker for doors and details of wood grain. And of course, the kitties are precious. The entire series was exhilarating.

Martha said...

Nice shadows, glad to see the cat more interested in soaking up the sun than chasing the birds.

Margaret Gosden said...

Thanks for visiting. I am glad you did, otherwise I would not have found you. I forget that not everyone would have that tune in their head! That helps. Your spring scenes and activities are wonderful and the number of them adds to the pleasure. Now I am going to look at your wordzzle challenge.

PS I remember Babette's Feast - I was very taken with it several years ago. Oh dear, how time flies.

I can see you've been saving up your shadows. Nice shots!

That is the chicken said...

How do you choose?! My favourites are the partially open door with the weathered boards, the snoozing cat and the flying blackbird shadow...I like how just his tail is in the picture!

Brandi said...

Great photos! The property you live on is amazing!!! I really enjoyed the shaddow shot on the barn door. Thanks for visiting and kind comments on my 1st shaddow shot! :)

Carin said...

WOW what a large number of pictures. You have many birds around the house. Wonder how that is possible with a cat there too!

Take care and have a nice week!

Hi, thanks for your nice comment about my photo (the setting is in Inwood, a neighborhood in northern Manhattan in NYC, by the way. It's where I live)

I don't know where you're located, but you have beautiful scenery there! I'd love to be able to open my front door and see *that* every morning.

Robins really are so pretty, aren't they? I think they get overlooked because they're so common, but the blend of reddish brown and gray is really quite gorgeous.

Sarah said...

Such a lovely collection! I especially enjoyed the birds and your cat!

julie king said...

what a wonderfulset of photos! i particularly like the one of the barn or shed door and all the big, cloudy sky shots!!!!

bobbie said...

This is a beautiful set of photos, Raven. Very nice shadows. I like the door too.

Thoughtfully blended hearts said...

and Happy Sunday to you too, your photos helped to make my rainy day Sunday a nice one (well that and a nap)...Love your kitty...I can almost hear her purring...The wooden door shot is great also...it looks mysterious...
Thanks

Hooray for spring...it's about time...my Jenny Wrens have moved in, as well as all the others, it was a symphony of bird-song today...neat shots!

Rebecca said...

nice shadows - very scerene. Thanks for posting to my blog too. The bush in the middle of the street was a huge tumble weed.

Martha said...

Nice series of shadow shots! Thanks for stopping by to see mine :-)

Marvelous group of shots, Raven! I really enjoyed them all! And love the kitty! Have a great week!

Beautiful!!!

Love that bird taking off in flight. And I'm always so amazed at how beautiful your part of the country is.

Good work!

I especially appreciate tree shadows. They are always interesting and always different from each other.

Elizabeth said...

What magic pictures of your world.
Loved the cat and the barn door, and, in fact
everything.
Such clouds

I can see how you miss NY but what riches you have now.

Dianne said...

WONDERFUL photographs (as always) and interesting shadows for sure. Looks like Spring has fully arrived in your part of the world.
