Snowshadows

So many things draw our eyes during and after a snowfall.  It was the shadows on the snow that turned my head this day.

The brilliant sun after a snowfall casts the most wonderful shadows on the snow.

And aren’t those snow sparkles fun?

They bring a smile to my face even on a zero degree morning. The sun sure helps, too!

Stay warm my friends.

Fenceline in Monochrome

For this week’s post on Monochromia, I wanted to show sunlight … it seems as if we haven’t seen alot of that this summer.

Shiloh Christian Church

It was a gorgeous day in Shiloh, perfect for late afternoon photography, and the Shiloh Christian Church looked bright and pretty sitting up on the hill in the sunlight.

What a difference the flip of a switch makes (or actually, the tap on the keyboard).

Which one srikes your fancy?  And don’t you just love the shadows on the walls?

Neglected

Soon, very soon, I’ll get to those leaves.  They’ve been neglected, but at least this year I have an excuse! 🙂

The shadows of the tree on the house caught my eye this morning,

The Farm, At a Distance

This is the second of three posts that includes photographs that I took at a local farm.  The first photos were close up shots of various parts of  the red barn that sits on that property.  These shots reveal the wonderful uniqueness of  2 outbuildings that are part of the farm.  I loved the shadows that danced all over them that day.

Evidence!

I was heading home last evening after a long (but good) day when the shadows that appeared like stripes on the grass caught my eye.  The scene revealed evidence of the past winter, the recent flood and the coming of spring.
