I'm not afraid of my own shadow!

This post was certainly a no brainer. In fact, it was my love of shadow photos that led me to choose the poem I illustrated in my last post. And this is my favorite shadow photo of all time. It was taken on the beach in Dominical, Costa Rica. I just love the swirl of the sand and the quiet pooled water.

I took this photo last fall on the Split Rock trail in Duluth, MN.



This photo was taken in Duluth last fall as well.



This photo was taken on a hike at Castle Mound Campground in Wisconsin.





I took this photo by lake Harriet, Minnesota.




I LOVE this photo. It was taken last October during our yearly Halloween walk through Lakewood Cemetery. The late afternoon Sun produced long shadows. And the tree creepily spreads it's shadowed branches all the way to the headstones.




This photo was taken at Jay Cooke State Park in Minnesota. It's my last shadow entry in today's post. But I could dig up many more if I was so inclined. Thanks for stopping by www.marblespark.com/blog/ to vote! If you haven't stopped by the link yet, please do. If I get enough votes my illustration could end up in a book!

Oh, I'll go over there and vote. I hope I can vote for a specific one, because that Halloween shadow shot is PERFECT! But, that said, they are all good, Sharon. :-)

Shadows telling great stories! :)

Gosh! Your cat walked through your dinner plate! Bet it's tough on emotions...to be angry or laugh or both!
