Me & My Shadow

Project 52 Entry #21

So here I was trying to set up the shot and I realized that I was casting a rather large shadow. I was trying to get my shadow to move but she just wouldn’t budge…stubborn my shadow is. (Hmmmm did I just sound like Yoda?) Anyway the more I looked in the viewfinder the more I decided that I liked the look of this so I decided to let her stay.

  1. Great shot Edith. Fantastic fall colors, and I think the shadow adds a human touch to the landscape.

    P.S. I didn’t realize you were so tall. 🙂

    • LOL…thanks Steven. As a mere mortal I am a bit vertically challenged so there is a plus to my shadow.

    you chose a stunning landscape. change of colors in ontario. always magical, and evolving as the days unfold. love the contrast between the textured leaves and the barren ground beneath your feet. your shadow is evidence of time and space. that moment was yours. thanks for sharing it with us.

  14. Great choice. The shadow adds that little something to the landscape that makes it unique. No one will ever shoot it just like that again!!

    Hi Edith; those autumn colours make me home sick as I live in Thailand and of course we don’t see the flaming oranges and reds of the leaves here. You were brave to leave your shadow in the photograph because as a purist, I would not have because I would have felt it imposed on nature’s unblemished beauty. I’m still of two minds, but can go along with it as it kind of blends with the branch like crevices that it intersects. Wonderful exposure though, and what colours. Gerry
