Shadow Shot Sunday - Winter Shadows

Winter's biting blast
Races cross flat barren plain
Coating world in white

Soft windswept sculpture
Unequaled by artist's hand
Nature's masterpiece

Beyond arched stone bridge
Geese huddle by icy pond
Await Spring's return




Bare brown winter tree
Cast a mighty blue shadow
Soon all will be green

I like the angle of the first shot, but the last shadow of the tree is my favourite. Your words are so fitting to your photos. Lovely!

There really is nothing more grand than the work of the architects of Winter...but it's so bad for business. If we can hold out till the end of March, it is beautiful, but if not, Ol' Man Winter is a dreaded enemy!

Beautiful shots, looks like Iowa to me, have a sunny Sunday...we hope!!!

Hi Mickie,

How pretty! This photo reminds me of the ocean and sand dunes, but all done in snow. I enjoyed your poetry too.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

God bless,

Kathy

Love these shot ... the firs two fooled me at first as my brain decided the snow and forground hill was really sand and dunes thus suggesting a beach view! Well done!

Woody said...

I love how the wind shapes the snow drifts, which lend themselves to spectacular shadows!
