Shadowy Corners in the Garden - Shadow Shot Sunday

One of the rare sunny days here this winter in Edmonton produced lovely deep shadows in the corner of the garden.  Blanketed in snow, it is pristine and almost monochromatic and definitely beautiful.  This weekend, however, we are getting a dusting of snow after a brief period of warmth which created small ponds, read large puddles, on the roads.  We now have "skating rinks" deceptively concealed beneath white powder.  Treacherous for sure. I am hoping the sand I applied yesterday will provide a more secure footing for those who must venture out in the cold this weekend.  Enjoy the weekend!

Sharing shadows from my little corner of the world at Shadow Shot Sunday.

Even in an otherwise white world, there are remarkable shadows to be found and you did.

It's always a welcome sight after lots of snow...sun. And the shadows cast are terrific here in your sharing.

From the looks of things, it'll be a while before your garden springs to life.


If you see a shadow
And want to keep it near,
Point your trusty shooter
(Make sure the lens is clear);
Press with care the shutter,
Do not slam or sock it—
Then you’ll have a photo
To carry in your pocket!

I love the tilt to the shot
the piles of snow on the little bushes makes them look a bit like gnomes :)

Just to let you know I'm now a follower and have added you to my blog list. You have had so much more snow than we have here on the farm. I hope your neighbourhood streets are cleared by now.

Glad it is in the high sixties here today. But the shadows on the snow are beautiful.

I enjoyed your shadow shot for today- and especially with the sounds of birds chirping and water running- nice touch!

Thank you for using sand and not salt... I know we had a bit of sun and my whole mood lifted....
