Two days ago, on my cross-country ski under brilliant blue sunny skies (see Thursday's post), I got a few shots of shadows. Having just discovered 'A Personal Photo Challenge', hosted by Donna, where the challenge this month is shadows, I'll share these today. I'll be posting more photos from that ski outing - from the trail 'down in the swamp'.
The trails at Glenelg are really varied, and very scenic. This photo is from one of the hardwood bush sections of the trail (uphill as I recall).
And this part is near the end where I was on a nice downhill run getting back to the car after nearly 3 hours, pleasantly tired from the exercise on a beautiful day. Few sports like cross-country skiing for good exercise!
I wondered about avoiding my shadow in this picture, but in the end I decided it added to it, and only wish I had taken one aimed lower to get the full shadow. I think I was first down these freshly track-set trails, in perfect snow conditions.
Today is a different story, with one of those warm air masses from the American south tresspassing north and bringing our annual January thaw. Raining hard and melting fast - unfortunately.
