Shadow Shots

I love that the shadow of the little maple branches are showing through the sunlit leaf.

The capture of the shadow is nice, the more wonderful thing the pastel leaf that is still around, sitting proudly on the branch. The feisty leaf doesn't yet know that Winter is not far away. The poignant view of the singular leaf is nice, a metaphor of the loss before the gain of Spring...

What a delightful shadow shot, Carletta! Have to agree with what Ralph says and he does say it so well!

Have a great weekend!

Awesome my friend. :)

I like the simplicity of this shot. The background branches are just there, making background and emphasizing the leaf with its shadow.

It's so delicate looking and ya know it's holding on fast to that last leaf.

I love the statement on your header...how true!

The little red leaf is so serene and so true to a season, as each beauty falls one by one...I love fall, but it also makes me sad...the end of summer.

Pacey said...

I love it too...so creative of you to have spotted that.

Lovely find ;--)
Thanks for sharing this little bit of Fall color with interesting shadows. I also enjoyed your Weekend Reflections and wish you could send some of that wet stuph our way here in Southern California.
Hugs and blessings,

The colour of the leaf is wonderful. The shadow cast by the twig makes it even nicer.

Raven said...

Nice shot. I like the sharp shadow on the leaf and then the softer shadows behind. Trees in front of my house are completely bare already. Sigh.

Step said...

The shadows and reflections are wonderful.
