winter shadows in the woods for Shadow Shot Sunday






Soft winter shadows in the woods create an inviting welcoming scene despite the often harsh cold temperatures. Beauty can be found in many places, even in unwelcome winter.
Below , seen in the early mid morning sun the shadows of the bridge railing are in sharp contrast to the muted soft woods shadows. Happy Shadow Shot Sundayto all on this freezing winter day. The weather forecast for next week of all sunny days does not hold much hope for a favourable report from Mr Groundhog on Tuesday (Feb2nd) He is sure to see his shadow and run for cover, his actions thereby announcing that there will be six more weeks of winter.

I certainly agree with you comment,on beauty being seen everywhere.Sometimes I get so caught up in the little problems of life,I fail to see the beauty all around me.
Blessings,Ruth

The third photo looks like you hit the end of the road. I love the northern shrike photo.

I thought it was just a little sparrow sized bird from the angle of the photo, but isn't the Shrike more like robin sized? Or maybe my lack of bird knowledge is showing.
