~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #152 ~ Shades & Shadows ~


“Every picture has its shadows 

And it has some source of light…” 

Joni Mitchell

Shadows add another dimension to the flat surface of photographs. I especially enjoy wavy shadows on water.

Mature Bald Eagle – Haliaeetus leucocephalus
Long-billed Dowitcher – Limnodromus scolopaceus
Dune Rune Shadow Dance

Shadows also add a sense of drama…

…and, as in the photo below of a Praying Mantis, shadows also can create the illusion of danger.

The length of shadows provides a clue to the time of day a photo was taken, as in the photo below of a long-legged Jello on our early morning walk!

Wishing everyone safe travels as we navigate outward once again. Please stay safe.

Thank you to Leya for another fun challenge!

    A great series, Lindy. We love the same things I think – and Jello of course. Love the dunes and the beach photos. Grasses are lovely. I think you are the first one to mention drama and the possibility of danger. I had some mentioning horror too.

    Love the flat-footed eagle and the dowitchers!
