Sunday Stills - Shadows



If you use your imagination, you can see me and my kayak, floating down the river. Interestingly, my shadow is, what do you call it, like the reflection (upside down) is also broadcast up on the bank as a shadow. So I'm floating along upside down as well as right side up.



A clearer shot...with a poison ivy crown.



Pollen on the river is, at the same time, beautiful and ugly. The shadow of the trees of the bank add an interesting element.



On "auto" my camera wanted to brighten this shot up to something not even close to what my eye was seeing. By manually speeding up my shutter speed, I got it...and the woods are lovely, dark and deep.

For more Shadowy Sunday Stills...

The shadow shots in the first two pictures are really interesting captures from a photography perspective and a scientific note on reflection. Sharp outlines clarify the images.

When I saw that you people had to do shadows I was really interested in what everyone would come up with.

Neat shots.
