Fence Shadows

As I take my camera and drive around on sunny days in search of new photos, often of barns these days, I sometimes also find interesting patterns of shadows along fences here and there.

You have to be out at the right time of day, and see a fence from the right direction, to appreciate the shadows.  This looks particularly blue in the afternoon sun.

The shadows of this fence look somewhat curved, even though the fence rails are straight, but it's because of the curving snowdrifts to the east of the fence.

And just down the road, literally half a kilometer, is this fence, the shadows made more complex by the significant drifting all along the east side of the fence.  This fence is on the farm with the green barn I posted a photo of a few days ago, and in the summer I've photographed the workhorses pasturing here.

And this shadow is right here in our own backyard, back a few weeks ago when the snow wasn't deep yet. The bottom rail is buried now.

I've had several new Followers join over the past few days; welcome and I hope you enjoy following along.

  4. You've given me a couple of ideas for my own photos, even if I don't have snow, I've certainly got shadows! :-)

  5. I like the shadows a lot - I rarely look for shadows - I'll have to be more observant.

  10. These are great. The snow provides a clean canvas which shows up the shadows beautifully.

  12. Stunning shadow captures, especially the "blue" ones, how lucky you are to have a scene such as this to photograph through the seasons.

  21. I noticed the blueness of the shadows in that first one too. I like looking for shadows and reflections, but not much sun around here lately to produce either one.
