Snow On Bare Branches
Shadow Shot Sunday

The trees spread out their bare branches
and cradled the snow in their arms.


This is my first entry into Shadow Shot Sunday. For more participants please visit Hey Harriet.

Congratulations on such beautiful shots in your first SSS.

Just looking at them here in Brisbane, where we are in the middle of a very hot summer, I almost feel cool!

There is something about shadows of trees in the snow isn't there? Love the close up too!

Bobbi said...

I love seeing the snow, it looks beautiful with the tree shadow falling across it. Welcome to SSS!

I love your header...this is a road I would definitly drive down with Scratchy hangin' out the window.

I can feel the cold off the snow in this crisp winter shot...or maybe it's cause I keep my house so cold...hmmmm(over-active imagination more likely) Ha!

Welcome to SSS, never found so many shadows in my life, nor did I care till now...I'm hooked and eyes are fully opened...

Love the snow shots. I can almost hear the quiet hush it brings.

Really pretty pictures, Carletta. I love taking pics of shadows. I might have to get in on this one.

Oh, those blue snow shadows. They are so beautiful! And I never heard of a snow shake! Learn something new every day. You'd certainly need clean snow, but sounds yummy and fun. You sure can't do that in NYC where I grew up!

Marvelous entry in your SSS. This is just so lovely.

I love the neat ambiance of the snow and grayish branches that make a dark gray shadows!

Job well done.
