Shadow Shot Sunday #87 Blue shadows


Snow, icicles and catkins on Corylus avellana contorta
Blue shadows in the snow. We are now in the middle of a thaw and everything is slushy and grubby - and flooding!

  4. Icy blue shadows seem cold as the snow sits upon the vegetation. Yet, the blue light is elegant, due to the cold yet still 'cool' to look at. Delicate lighting of winter..

  7. Wonderful shot! I love all the twisted tree roots (?) amongst the ice. It reminds me of my fridge when it's defrosting!

  9. Hi Janice, I like your icy tree.I bet it looks great when the catkins mature. We've had a thaw here too and now we have mud and the fields are full of water.

  11. Capturing the thawing out process is a first! Makes for an interesting variation on the snow front. Can really feel the edge between water and ice.

  12. Oooh, slushy and grubby? But it looks so pretty here in your photo! Sorry that my waffle confused you. I'm sure you were not the only one. I'm not so great at explaining things. Just keep on doing what you are doing as it's all good! :)

  15. Isn't nature marvellous? Now if you stuck me out there in the middle of a snowy winter, I doubt I would bloom again in Spring!
