Shadows in the Woods

Two weeks ago, on our last sunny day, was my big snowshoe walk in the woods next door.  Today the sun appeared again, and it was another spectacular winter's day.  But on that first hike, there were lots of interesting shadows across the trail.  Here's a selection of winter shadows.













 

And this was the valley today, just a perfect winter's day.  Snowshoed with a friend for 2 hours.

 And just because I couldn't resist, a shadow selfie.

  2. What beautiful shadowy shots! When we were at the AGO yesterday, we visited the Group of Seven rooms. I commented to my husband that they must have loved painting in the winter so much because of the great shadows that play across the snow. And here you have duplicated the same effects with your camera ;)

  4. Absolutely stunning!!! You could do a whole gallery show with just these photos. We rarely have sun on snow to make shadows. Here in the Pacific Northwest if we get snow it usually stays cloudy for a few days and then the snow melts. I really enjoyed looking at your photos over and over - so many wonderful details.
