Shadow Shot Sunday


Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday is celebrating it's 1st birthday so I'm glad that I have managed to get my act sort of together. As usual, I'm posting too many photos. As you can see, my lawn has needed mowing. It had gotten so tall that I couldn't see the birds while they were hopping around snacking on worms and other bird treats. Made for some cool shadows, though.

















Happy Sunday!

And Congrats to Hey Harriet on One Year of Shadow Shots

Carin said...

That lawn looks like an exciting place. Lots to discover. Hey that tree is giving me an eye!! LOL

Hey Harriet said...

Mowing the lawn is the pits. Ick! If left up to me, mine would never be done! And as you've shown here, long grass is much more intersting and fun anyway :) A great collection of shadow shots. Thanks heaps for the congrats. And of course thanks heaps for playing along!

What a beautiful garden you have. I loved looking at all of your shots, especially the tree with the eye, that lovely blue bird and the shadow of your cat.

Dear Raven,
I like the touch of wilderness in your lawn. Ours looks about the same, only with big dandelions added.

You can never post too many pictures. Each tells an interesting story.
I like the shadow picture of one of you cats.
I am not able to tell if it is Tara or Angel though.

Your yard is my kind of yard--very natural! Great bunch of shadow shots--my faves are the dandelion and hosta, and the "eye" in the birch bark tree trunk. Thanks for your comments on my blog too! Happy Sunday!

So hard to choose a favorite here! I love the grass shots, so simple yet complex and beautiful. I want to sink my bare toes in it!

What a wondeful selection of photots! I can't believe how green it is where you are. I loved the ones of the birch trees with their 'eyes' watching you from the shadows! Very cool!

Your long grass does make beautiful shadowy photos. Nah... I wouldn't mow it! That would be a real shame ;)

The shadows on the birch tree are stunning.

Why is the tree starring at me? It looks like many people are in it or perhaps it is a portal and that is the peephole they are all looking through before deciding to invade?
Love the rest of the pics.
