Shadows and Skies

Two of my favourite photo subjects are shadows and skies. I took my camera to school on Wednesday and had fun taking way too many shots of the sky and of shadows around the yard. But it was the kind of day that invited picture-taking. Here are some of those shots:

Skies: (for Sky Watch Friday)

Then there were shadows: (for Shadow Watch Sunday)

Be sure to visit the wonderful shadow-chasers here a t Hey Harriet,

and, here, for skies around the world.

Beautiful clouds in those blue Canadian skies. - Margy

You have quite a variety of shadows here, which proves my point: Those who seek shadows will find them!

(With apologies to Robert Louis Stevenson)

I had a little shadow
No bigger than my thumb;
I took him to the meadow
And there I gave him rum.

My drunken little shadow
Did weave and bob and pitch;
He stumbled from the meadow
And fell into a ditch!

Cloud Shadows

The shadows grace the underside of these magnificent clouds, so shadowy art is above as well as below our vantage points. The sun is now nearly overhead up North, so the log shadows of the colder months are now gone. And we enjoy this season, the break from the long winter that we all crave...

Lovely skies! And isn't it wonderful to see some blue!! We're still having mostly gray, but when the blue comes it is gorgeous! Great shadow shots for the day as always, Bev! Hope you have more sun for the weekend! Enjoy!

Love all the clouds...which a few and far between here in SoCal. Beautiful. The shadow pics are very cool, too.

Here's one that's appropriate for your sky shots:


No matter if blue or if grey,
The sky is my favorite way
To find my heart’s ease;
And now, if you please,
I must go look up straightaway.

Love the hydrant shadow. Cute!
Clouds are so pretty. I always run in to grab my camera, sometimes to late, when they are moving fast.

Lovely shadows & clouds, what will you do with them all? Have you made a book of them?
