Fun With Shadows

I have three small tree/shrubs in my back yard close to the house. This week as I was walking through my living room I noticed the shadow being cast by one of them on my window, so being the shadow shot nut that I am, I grabbed my camera.
The funny thing is as I started to focus on my subject I noticed that the shadow was moving.
The wind was blowing making the limbs move. Here you can see part of the limbs.

But, wait just a few seconds and you can see more of the limbs.

Here you can see all three tree/shrubs.
I always have fun finding and posting shadow shots, but this week was especially fun as I watched the wind change the shadows.
I hope you enjoy my shots. And, that you head over to Hey Harriet to see what others have posted this week.


  1. A very lovely pattern play of shadows on the soft curtain folds!

  2. Fun shadow shots. The third one is my fav!

  3. The third one looks like a painting in itself. Thanks for dropping by. Have fun.

  4. Your shadows are dancing! They're lovely, but difficult to capture when they don't remain still. Although you captured them perfectly! I can almost feel the movement just looking at them! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  5. I like the patterns on the curtains. It would be cool to capture them as a pattern.

  6. Fun indeed, I see my shutter shadow every morning when the sun is out...and it makes my day! And it makes me run for the camera...addiction you say...yes, but with eyes a little wider!

  7. You grabbed some terrific shadow shots and I agree, the third one looks like a painting! Hope you have a great week ahead!


  8. I love the dancing shadow trees ... and I agree with Becky too - the bottom picture looks like a painting!

  9. Hi, back! I really like your shots...I'm so partial to the third. The shadows make it appear to be a design on the curtains! Really cool! Enjoy your Sunday!

  10. lovely shadows you have spotted and captured!


    Chasing shadows here and there,
    Chasing shadows everywhere;
    Chasing shadows in the park;
    Chasing shadows long past dark;
    Chasing shadows through the light;
    Chasing shadows day and night—
    Shadow-chaser, don’t you see?
    Shadows were just meant to be!

  12. I like these "projection" shadows a lot! The only time I get them is during the summer when the sun shines onto the shower curtain!

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog!

  13. These are beautiful! I especially like the third one.

    I've also gotten where I see shadows everywhere. If only I always had my camera with me!

  14. Oh! How beautiful!
    Truly inspired shots.
    we love the third pic the best, with all the three shrub shadows.

    thanks for your earlier comment on our blog.
    hav a great day
